2019 WATERFOWL SEASON !!!!

Recommended Posts


If one was ever stopped by the law, what species would that fall under for your limit?
Good question . With the white spectrum above and below the blue on its wing , it would be considered a mallard. I bet most wouldn't even see that and call it a mallard anyway. Could probably argue it tho.

First impression is black duck, to me. Be interesting to see what an official might think. Or how to handle it. I’ve gotten some that were crossed, but not quite like that. Have you harvested any before?

Here in Ontario any signs of mallard traits and it counts as a mallard.

I would be going to court to fight any officer that called that hybrid a Black duck

Should be part of your total bag of 6, you could use it as the "other species" or all other NYS ducks.  You could still use it as a Mallard or a Black but if I remember right you would still be legal if you shot 2 mallards ( 1 hen only), 2 blacks, and this hybrid for example.  If you wanted to be safe and not worry, include it one of the species it closely resembles.  If you do happen to get checked, do not say "Frogger said....."  lol

Last year we shot a 7 man limit of Canvasbacks on Cayuga, all drakes, we shot a Canvasback Redhead hybrid that day and after talking with a friend who is a ECO he said we could count it towards either our Can or Redhead limit. We counted it towards our Redhead limit. A day I will never forget. We gave the bird to a friend who mounts nothing but birds. It is only the second such hybrid I have ever seen. Last week, my brother and his son and daughter shot a banded Can, it was banded in northern Saskatchewan in 2005 as an adult. Very cool.

Back to the quarry this morning. A little bit slower than yesterday . Not sure if the weather had anything to do with it !! Cold windy and snowing perfect condition for Mallards. I think the holes going to freeze up ,off to new waters! Taking next 2 days off for deer.

2 roosters yesterday, a drake goldeneye and 2 more roosters today with my lab Hank. First time pheasant hunting with him since the Nebraska trip and I gotta say he learned a lot out there. Hunting over him is a pleasure. Good luck and safe hunting

Today felt like opening day . There were people all over as expected now deer season is over . Had a back up plan the "black hole"... Nothing but black ducks most of the time and today was no different. We got our limit of blacks with a couple peach treats. Then back to the big water to finish out our limit . Couple Mallards and some squaws. Today involves a lot of work and driving around but it paid off. Resized_20191221_083452.jpegIMG_20191221_145245.jpeg
