Congrats, and good luck with your last days.
I just ran a boat from my home to Grand Haven, up under the bridge and down. 370 miles. I dont think there was a time I wasnt running squaws off the water. In 22 hours hours of running, i'm sure I saw up to 20 thousand. The hot spots are off of Thunder Bay in 120 foot of water, West of Charlevoix in 70 foot of water, and a HUGE concentration (non-stop birds) between Ludington and Muskegon, 1 mile out. weather doesnt even push those birds in. It was a SW wind at 35 with 12-14 foot seas, and those birds were content hanging out in the big water. Basically the only waterfowl species I encountered the entire trip.
Congrats on the bird! Good luck on eating it, if thats the route your going. I choked down a few this year, their almost as good as scoter
I shot 1 last year, its tail was more like a stub. Must of been a young bird.
We have quite a few of them here on the Potomac and Chesapeake Bay. I mounted a nice one last year with a beautiful long tail. Yesterday morning they saved a slow diver hunt for us (zillions of bluebills around, but had a hard time getting them to decoy....bluebird day...)
Way to go...
Nice job Jay
I saw a Brant feeding in a yard with some Canada geese on Erie this past weekend. I didn't even know they went through the great lakes.
....saw some hanging out with some honkers a couple weeks ago. I know of a few guys that have taken some over the years here. I hopw I get the chance to shot one here on Erie.. makes it that much more special to harvest a bird that is not all that frequent on the big water. I shot my first Surf Scoter drake this year as well... j.
It sounds like you're having a good year. You must do your
homework. I.E A lot of Scouting. I enjoy seeing your pictures
on the site, not to many guys shooting a variety of ducks.
Good Luck in the Future Good Looking Rig
