So when you're out there after the ducks, and a bunch of birds fly in, am I correct in thinking that with experience you learn which kind of duck it is by it's silhouette and flying pattern? :shrug:

Been watching a few videos and thinking how I would have NO CLUE what to/not to shoot....

The more you see them the better you get at ID'in them. I can tell them apart by the way they fly and most that hunt alot can. But there are times when it is hard to tell, especially on days like today when its cloudy, or they come straight in, face on with no swinging around.

Gotta learn what's not legal to shoot and what's legal.Most ducks are legal within limits.There are less illegal ducks around so you can spot them quicker because they are'nt as common a sight.Most birds this year[with canvasback and pintails being legal,which they were'nt last] you see you can feel safe to shoot.:confused:.........and you thought you were confused before.Now you see why duckers are so complexed and smart.:D:claphands::cheers:

Gotta becareful for sure. I would rather watch one fly off then get a ticket. Those cans surely decoy like malleÞs on the river. Just today was talkin to a feller that has been stackin for a while and said he thought a group teal was comin when the were really ringers.
