    Just when I thought I had my hunts for next year all figured out, and assumed I would not be able to safely go back to Mexico, I see this. Oh my!!!:bow

    I would always rather dust off a Dandy Drake than try to dry one. Makes for the better Pics IMO. Nothing worse than grabbing one by their neck out of the drink, and tossing it in the bottom of the Boat for awhile...:eek:

    Got a lot of nice Mallards that same way in MT a couple years ago. After a day of that we gave them some respite. We figured leave some for breeding stock. A ditch is hard for a Duck to escape from, and getting the Big Daddies is nice & easy...

    I agree... Our assigned retrievers were concerned about one thing... Mexican Mallet Meat! They were crammed full of Wheat from local fields and graineries. We never reached the full limit, just threw in the towell out of mercy. We cracked em pretty good and left about ten thousand for seed..:cool:
    Here is a pic of one being retrieved that Todd "Cracked"

    :l

    Mottled Ducks in FL hang in small groups usually. Are those Birds in big bunches often like Migratory Greenhead Mallards? Curious what those Mexican Mallards are like?

    The adults hang in pairs, and the younger birds stay grouped up. we learned to get the best ones was to stay away from the big groups and pick on the pairs..

    Variety and prime birds. I gotta stop looking at these pics. That storm wigeon is pretty sweet.
