We killed 10 this morning, all divers 9 ringnecks and 1 canvasback. Birds flew right at LST and decoyed. 20 minutes after LST, very few birds and the ones that did fly over would not decoy or respond to calling.
Not a puddler snob- but have hunted about 15 times YTD- didn't limit 2x could have w ringers. I will shoot maybe 10 year total- they suck. I have sat and watched groups of 5-25 come in without blinking. I love red heads and Canvasbacks- but Ringers will decoy to a tird- stupid and taste horrible. Won't ruin my sausage w them.
Used to shoot everything in my 20's and 30's - mainly about shooting them in the face and dog work now
Good luck to all
