speckle_searcher,Had every intention of doing what I consider a relatively easy(nothing bout duck hunting easy except missing!!)wood duck hunt this am but torrential rains hit us about the time I woulda been headed to Honey Island Swamp and slept in.If this recent front did NOT re-charge our duck marshes,especially on NShore where we have mixture of resident mallards and some migraters,we gonna be resorting to shooting whatever we have,be it scaup(hope not)buffleheads(hope not)mergansers(WILL NOT)BUT,we may have some Tree Ducks(definitely will)and older son shot nice one,know where some serious flocks are hanging around,and he stir-fried dat beast and said it was incredible and the legs are thick,makes sense since they land in trees and need strong legs for dat!!Merry Christmas and Happy and Prosperous New Year to all!!
