I shot 2 dake pinnies this season. Both had awesome color but no sprig! The last one we had 1 drake and 2 hens working us for awhile. They were probably going to make another pass when I decided I would pull up before my two buddies and drop the drake. They were pissed. lol. I took a picture of him huggingme, to show off his wing color, but haven't gotten the film developed yet.
