    AWESOME!!! Those surf scoters have the coolest bill in duckology! My favorite sea duck right there. Congrats on a fine trophy!

    Funny you'd say that...


    I hunted with some good friends in Ohio on Lake Erie 2 years ago. One of my buddy's father had passed away a few years prior. He's only in his late 20's so it was kinda tough on him to lose his old man that early. Anyways, he was talking about how for three or four years in a row, I can't remember, he and his father had ended the season on a bitter cold hunt shooting only one bull can. So we're out there hunting and it's outrageously cold, we had to break through 3" of ice to get out there, run the boat every 15 minutes to keep the water open, and it was quite miserable. We toughed it out and stayed in that blind for hours and finally, when we were just about to call it quits, my buddy pulled up and shot a crossing bull can. You could just feel the emotion in the blind, it was pretty special and one of those "single birds for the day" that you'll definitely remember for years to come.

    Based on my first season of duck hunting here on the peninsula I thought EVERY day was a one duck day!

    you boys NEED to come over to Kodiak. The seaward side of any bay is a great spot to shoot if you enjoy scoter. All 3 in great numbers. conditions can get ........interesting, but its great hunting for a wide variety of sea ducks.
