Flushing Wood Ducks
 
My first experience duck hunting was a teenager flushing wood ducks in our creek bottoms in Northeast Texas. I really enjoy the near upland experience this gives you.

I took my 7 year old son and we had a good time replicating the experience.





Different pictures over at my blog:http://wp.me/p3bCKM-az

Wood ducks are such fine looking birds. Do you have any good pictures of them? Post them up if you have them.

Thanks guys, it was a great day. Woodies are fine fare and pretty ducks. The boys love it.

Every duck hunter needs a drake woodie mounted. They are one of the most beautiful ducks in the world. I've got a big drake mounted flying and he is simply spectacular!

100% agreed!!!! I have a pair mounted on a taxid. log mount in my living room. It is turned sideways, unlike others that have it lengthwise. The hen in the knothole and the drake preening on the top side. Looks more like a log on the water.

Man... I haven't been on this website in years lol alot more activity going on now! Good to see. I agree woodies are beautiful! Half of the ducks I shoot every season are woodies... last year I think I shot around thirty, but I do still have a pretty drake mounted. But what I would give for a nice Pintail! I had a shot at a Canvasback but the 4's just didn't cut it... But good shooting my friend!
