    Statistically mallard is the most hunted (or harvested I guess).

    My fav is mallards in the timber. But I like all different ways of hunting, and hunting different species as well. Teal are fun to shoot.

    Mallards most hunted. I'm generally not happy till I have a Morning Woodie in hand.

    My favorite is either a wood duck or widgeon, In CA its tough to beat a flock of responsive widgeon dipping and diving out of the spread. Wood ducks are the most beautiful duck in my opinion and much more rare, you have to be in a certain habitat to harvest them and I can't say I frequent that habitat all that often. At the end of the day they are all fun.

    Based on what I see (not hear) from guys claiming they are mallard purists, the most desired waterfowl is the hen shoveler.

    Those guys will come out guns blazing for a swing-by of those bologna snatchers.

    Here in my area the mallard would be the most hunted.

    I perfer to shoot divers.
    I think the drake green wing is the best looking bird.
