THis was Charles 2nd trip with me and on this trip he has King eider on the top of his list, the weather and king eiders cooperated! The fall back was to fish for cod and king salmon if weather and King eiders didnt cooperated. Next on the list is fish!!
Very nice. How many king eiders have you guys gotten this year?
one hunter one drake
I dont eat eider and I had one duck hunter looking for eider, so just one drake.
Eiders are a great feed!
Bigger than most Geese.
I hunt them and Sae Scoters (Call 'em "Black Ducks") while my boys hunt Seals, and Im watching the boat while they prowl the ice.
They fly straight, and often low when curious....~LOL!~
We now have dark geese and they are easier to pluck, plus they are more plentiful.
