This season marks my 11th season of duck hunting. In all these seasons this is the very first time I have ever shot a male Wood Duck and I must say, I think it is the most colorful and striking of all the ducks. I was lucky enough to bag this male/female combo in one incoming swoop. Fired 3 shots and dropped these two Woodies. (Sorry pics are not from the marsh, forgot my damn phone at the house in the morning, guess I was excited to get into the marsh opening morning)

I have them in a bag in the freezer, was going to have them mounted as a pair but after looking into cost for mounting two it would be $750 for the pair, think I will thaw them out and eat 'em instead ;)

My first duck was a drake woodie. My brother shot the hen and me the drake. We had the same thoughts of a mount until we saw the price

Congrats on the drake! No matter how many of them I shoot I always take a few extra seconds to admire them. Beautiful bird!

The older I get the happier I am to see myself getting a woody!!
Haahahahaaha....... When my wife gives me the "not tonight", I've been telling her she better not waste them ,I'm not getting any younger. I give her a second and third chance explaining "this might be the last one, you never know". Just for the record.......it doesn't work.
