She does pretty good most of the time. Sometimes though, she doesn't want anything to do with the ducks. Which is weird. Dove, she's 100% absolutely a killer on though.

Use “hotlink for forum”. It makes the pic bigger.

Congrats on the Cinnamon Teal, pretty rare in my part of the world I have only seen 2 pairs in my life.

I took this picture last week from my shoreline, wish I had a better camera!

LOTS of Ducks here now.... rains this week have nixed my hunting, roads are muddy and I can't get to my blinds without tearing up the roads or getting stuck , even with 4WD.
Going to ferry some blocks into a blind on a Gator this evening and use it to get to the blind in the morning. Should dry out over the weekend.


Love teal. Have many good memories of early pot hole hunting Blue Wings which is the teal we mainly see here.

My dog likes retrieving teal, they aren't much bigger than dove here, so easy for her. I prefer big ducks though!

firstcoueswas80, your dog would love Ruddy Ducks then, even smaller than Teal!

I took this picture of this pair in my backyard yesterday, a direct comparison to a Mallard.

After hunting ducks for 59 years, this pair is only the second time I have seen them, pretty rare indeed!

The first duck I shot myself and had mounted was a Bufflehead, a beautiful bird and you are right they are tiny, I think I was 12.

Shovelers are pretty small too.

Both pictures were taken from my backyard this spring. I wish my father was still alive to see all the types of ducks we hunted together in my backyard, he started me duck hunting young and he would love it.
