You will likely never find a reliable canvasback property, but move East my friend


See y’all around the campfire.

Yep most consistent can hunting near you.


Grossly overrated bird though. I don't clean divers as they are tough to clean. Won't mount a can as I think they are ugly.

The mud flats of Caddo Lake have steadily held good numbers of Canvasbacks the last few years.

The can is a great eating bird - definitely one of the best. It is a PITA to pluck the breast, but it's worth it. Hot skillet, skin on, the fat renders out. Like steak.

Redheads aren't too bad either as far as cleaning goes. Skins comes right off like a puddler. Tank turds tho... that's another story.

Never have seen a canvasback in person, never have met anyone who has.

I have killed them on lakes near and north of Dallas and into central and western OK. Like said, main lake points. Leeward eddy side of those points will have them feeding there on windy days. I was usually hunting Divers or areas known for Divers when I killed them. And often in a boat. If your in the shallow far upper ends of lakes where most duck hunters go, you will be less likely to see them. I actually have a couple long lines set up to do that type of hunting for when the opportunity is there. Some years some places it seems like they are everywhere, some years same places you never see one.
