Never had a shot at a can, but would've loved to have had one. Widgeon is by far my favorite duck. Second would be the mallard, when the big fat Canadian birds come down late season!

I would have the same list, but I would remove the Ross and Speck Goose and the Cinnamon Teal. I guess I have never shot a common merganser either, but have shot a hooded merganzer.

I have shot a canvasback, but it has been quite a few years. Also, have shot a blue goose...but isn't that the same as a snow goose?

If I was smart iwould have mounted the black duck I shot, also some of the cinnimon teal, sprigs, spoony drakes and other stuff I shot when I was in southern calif. I do have the world record size green winged teal mounted! Shot it at the Salton Sea in far southern calif.

I have shot all of mine in MN...all in the central part of the state.

Snipe are good to eat. So are hooded merganzers.

The best ducks to eat (in my opinion) are the Greater and Lesser Scaups (bluebills).

The smartest ducks? I would say the Goldeneye.

I disagree as far as the Goldeneye being smart. I've always thought ther are very easy to decoy.

Really? I found them hard to come in and decoy.

Woodducks seem to come in to anything. I believe that is why antique wooden woodduck decoys are worth the most...as no one made or ordered woodduck decoys...and they came in to any decoy you had set out.

    •   You need to stop eating those funny mushrooms before wondering around in the woods like that. You could get lost! Lol
    • No, not morels (at least not here), but I saw two different species of mushrooms on a little walk through a local woods: the "orange peel fungus" (aleuria aurantia) and one little brown mushroom that I couldn't identify.  The season isn't that far away!! 
    •   First of all, don't you know that CNN is fake news?    Second, if everyone took that advice there would be more Atheists than Christians.                -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------            
    •   How about the plan that has proven effective in Portugal that I've told you about several times now? Are you just going to keep ignoring it and continue to ask silly questions?
    • Weather around the state has and will continue its fickle behavior as we close out an exceptionally warm week and move toward a significantly cooler weekend. Rain and snow are predicted across the state, with temperatures expected to fall rapidly Friday into Saturday, leading many to wonder if any of this precipitation will stick around long enough to revitalize the snowmobile and ski trails. Currently snowmobile trails remain open in a few northern counties, but conditions are very poor with bear spots and some standing water according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails have similar conditions where they remain open.Eagles are congregating along the Mississippi River just in time for Bald Eagle Appreciation Days at Prairie du Chien this weekend.Photo Credit: Donna HigginsThe warm front has also strongly effected ice-cover on state water bodies and anglers are also eagerly waiting to see what the weekend's cold front will provide. The ice on southern lakes is deteriorating fast and is unsafe to fish. Even in the Northwoods some waters are breaking up and where the ice is still thick there is plenty of water on it, and areas of open water have started to show up along shorelines and in marshes and especially around beaver lodges. As a result, many anglers have taken advantage of warm temperatures for open water fishing. This past weekend 100 plus boats were fishing the Fox River from the 172 Bridge to the dam at Voyageur Park. Anglers in boats have been having mixed results catching coho salmon and brown and rainbow trout in the Milwaukee Harbor and in Oak Creek. Anglers were open water fishing the Rock River for walleye and sauger, where the bite was on at the Indianford Dam. Sauger and walleye were biting on Lake Wisconsin. Warm temperatures and rain will have the Wisconsin River back above flood stage this weekend. .
    •   My two cents... if you use vinyl you will never have to replace it again. When is the water ever going to hit it and STAY moist? That is what carpet does, vinyl will allow the water to roll right off.
