Hey guys I thought that it might be cool to find out what your first ducks were.

My first duck was a hen gadwall

it was my first shot of the day on this years youth hunt
i limited out that day i got this hen, i got 3 hen greenwings, 1 drake greenwing, 1 drake gadwall, and last shot a very pretty mallard drake, I was even picking the ducks that I wanted toward the end. I limited out an hour and a half after shooting time.

I don't remember what my first duck was, that was a lonnnnnng time ago. All I can remember is it was alive when I pulled the trigger and dead seconds later. My guess would be it was a mallard. I used to jump shoot ducks a lot on the strawberry tributaries and used to find a lot of mallards up there.

My first duck wasn't a duck it was a coot. :rotfl: I didn't know any better, until some nice guy informed me, "oh thats just a coot." I think that was the last one i shot.

My first duck (I'd shot a few coots before then) was a drake Gadwall. Poked the gun through the cattails and smoked him on the water. I wound up having to smack him on my gun barrel to finish him off... what a bloody mess that was.... I didn't know the wring the neck trick then. :?
