I shot my first Alaskan Canvasback this morning at the hayflats. I wasn't really expecting to see cans out there. Mostly we only shoot puddle ducks. We also shot a buffelhead out there this morning. My buddy shot another Canvasback a few minutes after I shot mine. Over all it was a slow morning. We could have limited out if we would have paid more attention to the birds flying around. Nothing like watching a single duck flying around miles away, and calling at him, only to turn around in time to watch 20 widgeon rocket through the spread, and speed off. Another thing we had going against us, was my buddy forgot his key to his safety on his 870. Making it a 7 lb paper weight. We had to keep switching guns out with him. We won't be letting him forget about that.
