Who all has done it? I recently went to Greenland to do it and they're now back open again. I plan to go to St Paul one day to say I shot Kings from the east and west coast flock, but man this was a great way to break into King Eiders and Commons for that matter, very calm seas and double the King limit. Who else has done it, what's your experience been? Here are some pictures from my trip last March before covid shut everything down until this summer.

welcome I'm no duck hunter, but I've always thought they were cool birds and would like to try it someday. 'Looks like it was a great trip! up

$5500 all inclusive. Airfare was around $1300-1500. Other cost beside that was very minimal.

Gumbo tastes great with dogris or poldeau, I have no doubt Kings would be great in the gumbo pot.
