A lot of pintails around still. It was nice to see some other ducks drop into the decoys today too.

Oh, and if anyone needs some help getting a swan I would be happy to help. I have been covered in swans the last 3 trips out. There were some really nice looking big white birds today.

I don't need any help getting a swan, but I could use a little help getting a good drake cinnamon teal if you know where any more of those are hanging out. :mrgreen:

Nice work, and good on you for offering to help out.

How about helping a poor lost soul like myself get a couple pintails?:mrgreen:

Looks like a super fun time and way to throw out the helping hand on getting someone on a swan!

there are only 2 places where you could have picked up that cinny!;-)
3 now!:) These birds were all shot in the same spot while sitting in the boat. I was kind of surprised when a canvasback and a cinnamon teal dropped in the spread. I had 45 decoys out yesterday, all wigeon and pintail. Just wanted to try something different than the usual set up, and it worked pretty good.

That's pretty cool Fowlmouth. Love it when lots of different species come in on a given day. I thought the Cinnamon's were gone early, but I guess there are a few wayward birds that are lazy and haven't jetted south yet.

Well we know for danged sure it wasn't Farmington Bay because all the mud motors have chased all the ducks away and no one is killing any ducks at FB because of the mud motors.......-O\\__--O\\__--O\\__--O\\__-

Oddly enough the Cinnys have been thick the last couple years. Me and a buddy shot 3 in one day last year at Ogden Bay and shot 4 this year. The colors aren't great and only one of the 7 was mountable. When we shot the 1st one I was unsure what type it was so I looked it up. Still to this day I haven't shot one that is good enough to mount. You would think we would have a teal season like Oklahoma does because the numbers are crazy high. Great job on your mixed bag. :):)

FB has great hunting if you are willing to put in the work. tons of birds, just have to find them and I don't think a few mud motors do damage. It could however be the airboats. LOL I am going with sky busters on this one though. O*---8/-

I have always heard that too, and it probably is true. The funny thing though is that I have never shot one in October or November, it has always been December or January. Well I got one to show for the month of November now.

I took a newbie on this hunt. He did pretty good for his 1st time, and he had a brand new shotgun that he had never shot. He got 2 teal, a canvasback and a pintail. My shooting this year has either been spot on or spot off, this hunt I was off.:mad: Should and could have had a limit.
