So since it's off season, there's a few thing I want to improve being a new waterfowl hunter (This was my first season.) I actually did a lot better for my first season than I thought.. Friend and I (who's also new to duck hunting) stayed down in Port O' Connor for 4 days and shot our redhead limits everyday we were there.. Considering all we saw were redheads, and we went out there trying to learn, it was awesome!! I also do okay back home in Galveston with a few redheads and a bluebill.
Anyway... How did you guys go about practicing learning how to identify a duck while it's in flight and in the air? If you put a picture of a duck in front of me, I can tell you what it is. But while they are up in the air, I couldn't even tell you if they are redheads or pintail (which should be easy to depict.)
Next season we plan to branch out a bit and even hunt early teal season, so I don't want to just be shooting and hoping it's what we were looking for.. Just wondering how y'all learned to depict duck from duck while it's flying, or even coming in on the decoys.
