Looking at Bowtechshooters recent photo post I noticed that he said he took his limit of 10 birds and indeed he shows ten birds on the tail gate. However, he actually is three ducks short of his 10 bird "duck" limit. He is seven birds short of his 10 bird "sea duck" limit.
What species of sea duck did he take in the interior of Alaska?
Are they all three females or are they a mix of juvenile males and females?
How would he tell? Is it the eye color? or the wing color? Patches on the face? How would he tell if the males were adults?
Wishing you had a LeMaster's Method book right now? Bowtech probably is wishing for it since he could have taken three more mallards today. Or seven more mystery sea ducks far from the ocean. No need to drive all the way to Valdez.
