I think a scaup would be pretty sweet. scaup numbers are pretty low historically so it would be nice to get one while we can still harvest them
I would agree with a canvasback or a drake widgeon. I always tear widgeons up when I shoot them.
My wife wants me to shoot a mallard for the wall, I would like to have a canvasback. But I will say this, I LOVE THAT WAMAN!
The first year I got into duck hunting was about 1994 or 95 anyway I shot a beautiful drake Cavasback. My duck hunting buddy Billy Williams told me he had never gotten one. They are not common in Kansas. I ate the bird 'cause my wife is allergic to feathers. Sure wish I had done the Taxidermy thing nowdays. Never gotten another one.
I shot a couple of Hooded Mergansers not realizing how rare they were, and ate them. Eating them was a very traumatic experience, and since they are so beautiful, I sorely wish I had mounted them.
It would have to be either a common goldeneye or a pintail.
HFS, I bet you fully understand why they are called fish ducks now! My old college roommate had to learn the hard way too! They are a pretty good duck for Gumbo though, fish and fowl all in one.
I would like a really nice Drake Widgeon. Never killed one in full late seaon plumage.
A male wood duck posed to look like it is flaring low over the water.
I agree with you GS, a wood duck is my number one, never seen one in far west texas which is why I would like 1 I suppose.
i would like to mount a wood duck or a pintail drake
THAT IS THE QUESTION OF THE YEAR.EACH SEASON MY WIFE AN I PICK A DRAKE THAT WE'D LIKE TO GET MOUNTED AND LET THE HUNT BEGIN.WE HAVE A GREAT START. BUT MY TOP PICS WOULD BE.1OLDSSQUAW 2CANVASBACK 3CINNAMONTEAL ITS HARD TO CHOOSE JUST ONE.
Definitely a Wood Duck!!!
went hunting with some of my buddies family in yakima but they all upland hunt and we would be doing both any ways shot a drake woodie and it was only a crippled so I ran after it normaly it would be the dogs job but I was forced to leave my lab at home needless to say I cant sniff out the muskrat hole that the duck went into so after an hour I was forced to give up. so I am after one this next year.
