I hunted farmington bay yesterday with my dad. It was Ruddy heaven. I bagged four and my dad bagged four. Of those I had three Ruddys and my dad had two. Aren't Ruddys supposed to be early migrators and has anyone else seen a lot of them or any other divers?

They come in early but they seem to like to stay until Freeze up.

What!? :idea:
Not all of us are as smart (smart ass) as you. I said "in my experience they move with the shovelers". Im sure you know so **** much about ducks you could tell us what a hens ass taste like. When I have shot ruddies I have shot shovelers, this is my experience. I didnt write a thesis on it.

I think what Sean is trying to say is that comparing ruddy ducks and shovlers is like comparing apples and oranges. They really don't have anything in common...except water.

Thanks,

I'm not trying to be a smart ass...I just wanted further explanation to which your comment didn't make any sense to me. I don't know everything about Ruddy Ducks, heck I shot my first one this year. I would maybe compare them to Buffleheads, migratory wise?

I have hunted Farmington Bay for almost 31 years. Ruddy ducks are in FB all season long. They are available hunt from youth hunt to the last day. My kids love to shoot ruddy's on the ****. And you have to admit they are a fun target as they are typically low flying and have an erratic wing beat.

My kids love to eat them as well. I know this may make some of you nauseaus thinking about it - but they like their more strong flavored meat.
