    While shooting pigeons at a dairy, I happened to take notice of a very good mallard/pintail hybrid about 2 weeks after the season ended... The bird was scared off the dairy poop-pond, and took about a 30 yard pass right over me... I knew what it was, with a loaded gun, and a perfect shot... That there was resisting temptation....

    If I put a bird on the wall, I do not want to have my conscience itching every time I look at it though...

    Three years ago, I had several hundred bluewings in a slough right behind my duck camp in early April. I withstood temptation, but it was not easy, as there were hordes of beautifully colored drakes. The following January, I killed a gorgeous Mississippi bluewing which was absolutely as pretty as the late February ones from Mexico. So, sometimes doing the right thing does pay off!

    I have never killed one that wasn't fishy. Are they good sometime?

    They are hit and miss... your odds of getting a nasty one are somewhere between getting a nasty gaddy and getting a nasty mallard, if that makes any sense.
