    Default Florida ducks

    Some folks have been asking what I've been up to since I left Alaska and moved down here to Florida. Here's a few pics from this past season. Let it be known though that I dream everyday of moving back up there. I have three more years left here and then I'll be heading back to the great white north. Looking at Kodiak and Ketchikan for my top two choices!

    Those are some awesome looking ducks man. I've been trying to get a nice red head and canvasback like those for a long time for the wall so I gotta say I'm jealous. Already got several wood ducks. Great pics and it looks like you had a good time

    Is that a fulvous tree duck on top of those blue wings? If so COOL!!! I have never seen one of those before. The alligator thing would freak me out. I would assume that its unsafe to use dogs while hunting. Nice pics. It makes me want to move back to Delaware for the waterfowl season.

    Yep, it's a fulvous. We kill quite a few of them down here as well as the black bellied whistling ducks. I have a pair of them that are getting mounted this year together. Should be pretty neat. I'll post pics when it's done!

    I missed them before, but reqally nice mature woodies as well! That is one big crest that drake has. I see you have Ketch and Kodiak as your for first choices, so I am guessing you are a coastie. I used to be one. Depending on your rating dont forget Sector Anchorage. I was stationed at the MSO prior to it being a sector.

    Yep, I'm a Coastie. ET2 here and Anchorage is out of the question. I thought it might be neat to live there for the access that it gives to lots of other hunting and fishing in the interior. I don't like the city though. Way too dirty and too much crime. With my wife being from Cordova she quickly scratched that from the list of possibles anyway!

    I just got sent down here to pensacola, but I am going to be out of here in june. I wish I could have been sent here a couple months ago though, I would have taken every opportunity to hunt ducks down here. **** military not caring about sending you down during duck season!
