    I understand. I am willing to do hours of work for one group of divers to work right.

    Hey there DWB, welcome aboard here. I think you'll find this main forum
    not only informative, but a lot of enjoyment as well. I know I have, as well as hundreds of others. If yur willing to put a good effort into your waterfowl program, it will definitely pay dividends in good duckin'. Enjoy.

    If I have to run a wheel chair through a marsh I will be diver hunting. Nothing like it!

    Got back into it a few years ago after many away. Nothing like a windy, nasty diver hunt to make you all warm and tingly inside! Back in the early 90's we did very well around our area, but I haven't seen those numbers around here since I started back at them. Lots of guys say that the divers go thru the dakotas and not south western mn (Willmar Area)

    I feel more like a diver expansionist than a diver convert.

    So really, what groups of ducks are there in North America? 1) Puddlers, 2) Divers, 3) Sea Ducks, 4) Mergansers and 5) Tree ducks? I'm interested in all of them...

    Back in the day when cans were a no-no...they circled and approached several times giving me time to put the gun up and get the camera out. Cans love a mallard hen call.

    Rubberhead I'm fairly certain you have far more self control than I

    Thank you for those pics! I don't have much of a choice, ringnecks/blackjacks are 97% of my kills. But I love them! They are consummate fliers, even if their landings/take offs are awkward. I am sometimes graced by big flocks and get goose pimples, but usually it is just twos and threes, but what glorious sport and pretty darn good eating, though the teal and woodies are a tad better, but I don't disdain ringers.
    No big decoy spread big water for me- smaller potholes and I can hide my boat in the sawgrass islands. Amen!
