We do this all of the time here in the panhandle. There are 230 producing wells on the ranch I hunt, and we hunt the water pits they use to drill/frac out of. Clean water, not saltwater.
We kill some true trophies. It is fun, as I will only kill a duck I am going to mount. I do not eat them so I will not waste them.
We see lots of ducks, and it is a fun hunt, kind of like spot and stalk.
Chasing a hooded merganser as I dream of mounting one of them, but have yet to see any on the ranch I hunt. Have seen some 2 miles away last week, but no go so far.
Blue wing teal and Cinnamon are the only ones left for the panhandle.
Seen 2 huge Canvasback drakes yesterday, but I just don't think they are pretty enough to mount for me. Just my opinion.
