    I do walk in hunt, they're still worthless.

    We only see bwt in late Aug and early Sept.Once in a while we shoot a gwt then.
    I have had some great late season gwt shoots.
    I have shot them in marsh's,mud flats, timber holes and even in open water.
    One of my favorites.Nothing prettier than a drake gw.
    The bw's that come thru here all look like hens.

    I agree. Only us a couple dove spinners for teal. I don't like them at all for regular duck season.

    Yes. "Teal" isn't a species, but rather a term that describes small puddle ducks, being in North America, the blue-winged, cinnamon, and green-winged teals.

    The green-winged teal is a stand alone species. But the blue-winged and cinnamon teal are not only closely related to each other but they are closely related to the northern shoveler and all three share the same surface feeding traits.

    In Australia and New Zealand, the Australasian shoveler is one of the most prized trophy ducks and it combines the colors of the blue-winged and cinnamon teals as well as the northern shoveler...

    Don’t confuse people with incorrect statements. Every type of “teal” is a unique species. In North America the common species of teal are green wing (Anas carolinensis), blue wing (Anas discors), and cinnamon (Anas cyanoptera). North shoveler is an individual species as well (Anas clypeata).

    When all is said and done, a full strap of teal is very satisifying and some great eating as well.

    GW's just stick around a lot longer, over the years I've learned not to shy away from a limit of GW's, meant the difference between going home with ducks and not many times.

    Some of the old timers I used to know called Teal “breakfast ducks”.
