    Supposedly, they are kicking it back up to two birds next season (at least in California from my understanding).

    Nice bird! Wall or table? Really cannot go wrong either way, they are one of the finest birds to eat, and they make a pretty mount on the wall.

    Congrats on your Bull Sprig, probably the most graceful waterfowl in flight, and handsome in the hand. Having hunted waterfowl in California for over 50 years I've shot quite a few, and always am amazed when I hold one in my hand. When I was in high school in the 60's Gray Lodge refuge at dusk would buzz with Sprig heading out to feed, and many 7 bird limits of strictly sprig were taken while hunting, lol we used to think mallards were a big deal when you got a bunch!

    Beautiful bird! I painted up a few decoys with hopes that I might attract their attention when a flight comes through!

    Beautiful bird - congratulations. I always think of duck hunting as a time machine - there's nothing that can make a grown man feel more like a kid than a good morning of duck hunting.
