The Duck Hunter's Refuge, aka The Refuge Forums, is the leading online community for duck and goose hunters.
Since this is more a pet question I’m posting here as opposed to the gun dog forum, also wanting to get more views and opinions.
One of my blind partners took his boys out today and they shot this drake mallard with what appears to be a band clipped into the webbing of its foot. Anyone ever see anything like this before? Have any intel?
Been working on this farm since April . it’s on a great flight line between refuges and on a river that floods the bottoms easily
He waits at the door when I pull up and comes out to carry in a bird. He doesn’t care when I leave him home anymore. Loves life in the house, but the second I get home if I don’t give him a bird he pouts. He walks it in, shows it to momma so she can tell him what a good boy he is, and then brings it to the garage. At four months shy of fifteen, he can do whatever makes him happy. Keep up the good work Mag!
Can anyone help me with this decoy, what is it Herters? What year?
Do a lot of you guys/gals hunt on Thanksgiving morning? My late brother & I used to do a quick 3-4 hour duck hunt then go home, dress out some ducks (if we were lucky), clean up & head to Mom & Dad's for late/early dinner.
One more time
I had 1 left in the freezer a small 4lbr so I let it rip
Found it yesterday looking for a chicken and thought what the heck
There is always lots of controversy About eating ring necks and I mostly toss the very few I kill every year in the old stick pile.
Quick pan fry in olive oil and wonder flour and or course heavy sprinkling of old bay!!
She's a beaut Clark!!
The day before we left for the elk hunt, we managed to get the new boat muddy and bloody. Had a quick shoot and scratched out a mixed limit of teal, mallards, redheads and a gadwall. Even managed to shoot a honker.
