    Thought I'd post since season is starting here. First season in FL. I'll be out tomorrow and thought it might be interesting if people posted what kind of birds they get on hunts. From the Midwest and it's usually a lot of mallards. I have heard down here is a lot of blue wings, ringers, and different birds I haven't gotten too often. Good luck all.

    Was actually trying to waylay a couple woodies...but they snuck past without a shot at 1 minute after legal light. This was a consolation prize.

    Well, ended up having a good hunt. Had a group of 4 and ended up w/8 black bellies and 2 blue wings. Saw lots of ringers and blue wings up high. I think they were onto the game after being shot at all weekend. 1st whistler for me, pretty cool. I'll be looking around a WMA this weekend to see if I can find a hole.
