First good weather this season and I had dreams of mallards tornadoing through the tree tops. By sunrise I realized that wasn't going to happen. Same ole nothing thats been here for the last week. Hunted, scouted, and bushwacked from shooting time til around 12:00 with nothing to show. After a number of failed sneaks I was ready to head to the house when three teal landed right where I just came from. Committed to one more try. Busted again and they jumped at a distance I would normally not shoot but I instantly knew what they were with the mature drake standing out strong. 1st shot- body hit but not coming down. 2nd shot- pellet right through the eyes. Bird goes in to the hummingbird flutter where they just hover in place. 3rd shot- nothing. The 25mph west wind finally took over and he peeled off to flutter down 300 yards into the woods. I had a perfect mark but when I got to it, he went down in a flowing water oak flat. At that point I knew he was gone but I headed down stream in hopes. 100 yards later I spotted a shining red Christmas bulb just drifting along with his head up.

One of the last birds on my list yet to knock off, along with both Golden Eye Drakes.

Someday Hopefully.

Congrats

If you are only going to shoot one that would be a good one to shoot!

You've got to get it mounted and pay the money to have it done right.
