...what do you do when youve got 5 dead green heads on your strap? do you pack up and leave with your mallard limit? or do you shoot a trash duck to make number 6? Does the wonder settle for a bull sprig? or a canvasback? or maybe stoop so low as to shoot a woodie when hunting mallards in the flooded timber?

In flooded timber, I might wait it out for a drake woodie or another good drake. It would also depend on how many birds are buzzing around and what time I had that 5th greenhead. I'll usually wait for a sixth bird when I have five mallards.

Then you ruined your strap of green. Pack up and go!

Throw in a drake(can, woodie, widgeon, bull sprig,etc) and you just made your strap even better. Not filling it would Be like fishing a tournament and going to weigh-in early with four big smallmouth when you can still fill out your 5 fish limit lol

Shoot the next bird that comes in! Why waste all your money time and effort to leave without even trying to get a limit.

"All ducks make the same splash" If it comes in its going to fall. A limit is a limit, thats my philosophy.

Somedays they are kinda easy bc the birds are moving/working well and your able to pass on certain birds..
