    And one of the best squaws we've shot. 20171108_112710.jpg

    Call me crazy but I’d make a trip south just for a prime spoony.

    So would I, but deep down I'd really be gunning for a stud pintail.

    They decoy so well, I don't think they can see with big ol scoop lol. For a few seasons I was hunting Point Mouillee regularly and it got to the point I wasn't shooting them(immature birds). Then I made a trip to fish Point and was covered up in em. Started shooting them on public lakes I grew up hunting. Damn things were following me around I swear.

    Nice long tail also!

    I've only seen them during teal, I'd like to get a couple smilers too.

    Here's one that I shot in January while hunting in AR. Excuse the poor photo quality as bird in storage.

    I'd love to mount one, mostly cause I don't shoot them and they... don't taste good? Never had one honestly. Or shot one.

    Cool looking bird for sure I'd love to see one up close.
