Duck ID Help

16 posts in this topic

My son dropped this duck during youth waterfowl day. Can anyone help in what kind of duck it is? He shot it north of Duluth - it had black colored webbed feet.

It is definately not the Greater Northern Flesh Eating Spoonbill. Shoot one of those, and you'll know it. Good job by the boy, hope you had a good shoot.

I'm assuming a young Widgeon??? I just don't see it after looking on the DNR site on IDing ducks. But I think I am looking too hard at the wings to sprout some green.

Sounds like its probably a widgeon. Thanks for the info guys. At 10 years of age, my son has a wood duck, blue-winged teal, ringneck, and now a widgeon with his single shot 20 gauge.

    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
