    Hey Coho, can you actually hit them darn Teal?

    I stopped shooting “AT” them years ago although I rarely saw them over my diver rig!

    Coho is a master slayer of teal, Gibby and I are eye witnesses to his proficiency,

    I got an idea. Why not lie about your age and hunt teal on the youth hunts.

    What happened to the teal on the west side? Mainly green wing. Growing up, we shot limits after limits of them in the skagit area on the flats for a good portion of the season. I remember seeing thousands of teal out there and now you don’t see that many at. Teal are a great eating bird. I was lucky enough to get a pair of Cinnamons too. It would be cool to get a crack at Blues or Cinnamons before they migrate but I also wouldn’t want it take away from the regular season.

    Lots of GW around. Its the others I want. I knew a few spots that would hold BW now and then but they are closed to hunting now.

    Teal are hit and miss from year to year, some years I get tired of shooting them, after shooting 150+ with maybe 10 other birds mixed in :z. The good teal years are normally the years when the wigeon arrive late and the calendar migrant pintails leave here early. The only good thing about tons of teal, it's not so hard to stay under the possession limit because they're so small and it's easy to eat as many as you can shoot so you can pretty much hunt every chance you can get.

    I shot a Blue wing on the opener last season. That was only my second in 40 years of hunting in Washington.
    Teal breast is one of the best tasting ducks out there. If done right is tastes like a filet.
