Shot these this morning. They had wide beaks. Is this what they call a spoonbill duck?

You lucky dog!

I might have seen a cinnamon one time on one of our places but never while hunting.

You getting one mounted?

I'm willing to wager this wasn't in Texas.

Nope those are spoonies you can tell by the wing color too. Those are beautiful. I would mount one for sure.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's in tx. I saw 3 on my pond today when I was scouting. They summer and winter with spoonbills in Utah and Colorado. Not unreasonable to jump over a flyway. I've shot 5 in tx over the last 4 years. I broke rule #1 today-always scout with a gun!!! Or i'd have a couple more. Every one I've seen here has been with spoonies.

Just my opinion but I am an absolute amateur at duck hunting but getting into it. Are those Teal? Please correct me if I'm wrong. I shot a drake spoon 2 weeks ago with that same wing color but not cinnamon like that. Thanks

Regardless of where it was, congrats on a nice bag of birds

Aight, so they arent spoonies. But they were killed near College Station. Shot a juvy two weeks ago, another juvy last week, and got the whole flock of five yesterday.
