Hey guys new to the forum, been lurking for awhile and have enjoyed the insight from all the seasoned waterfowlers here. I have been hunting ducks for a little over 1 year now and would like to share my recent hunt and might I add FIRST LIMIT!!!

Sorry for all you drake only fanatics but couldn't help myself as these were the only birds dive bombing the dekes today. Only one drake and all the rest hens, I'm embarrassed to say but I'm not sure what kind they are, any help? I know they're mergansers but no picture of these in the proclamation.

Anyways hope the rest of you guys' hunts are going well and I look forward to years to come!

They won't taste very good. Most seasoned guys would have quit after getting a pair.
Having said that, I've hunted for 30 years and haven't harvest a pair of hoodies (i.e: hooded mergansers)

Later,
Kev

Wow, I've only ever seen 1 hoody drake and it was in a safe zone, I'd hold onto it and put it on a wall. Congrats, they are pretty rare, well maybe not where you were:D

Not to rain on the parade,but not knowing what they were why keep shooting? Our daily limits are based on species identification and gender. Taking a big risk....just don't want to see you in any trouble for too many hens of a certain species etc.....
