    Dump the DU resourse and get yourself a Lemaster duck identification booklet.

    How many times do I have to do this?

    How it works. First the bills. See one that fits?

    Every duck you'd ever shoot is in this book.
    The wings never lie.

    What's NOT IN YOUR BLIND BAG?
    This book....obviously.

    I believe in not kicking a man when he's down.
    You help him up, dust him off, teach him what he did wrong, and then give him a good kick.
    Ive been kicked around by the best. :)

    It may seem like I'm being harsh.
    Its tough love.

    When i was a younger dumber duckhunter I shot a bunch of spoonies one year. I couldn't tell that they weren't mallards. Finally I looked at one and studied how to tell the difference. "White chest brown butt is a spoonie dont shoot. Brown chest white butt is the keepers". Had to repeat it 50 times.
    "White chest brown butt dont shoot".

    The first year we hunted (1974) we shot some coots, and after reading my book on Waterfowling (Paul Bernsen) w/the descriptions I thought they were Gadwalls ie: grey ducks! :l

    I got that one, too! I picked it up while standing in line at a State F&WA back in the day (late 70's), but the LeMaster is suppose to be on waterproof paper?
