I confess I'll shoot shovelers everytime they come in!! Hence how I was given my handle. My hunting partners will sit in the blind embarrassed while I blaze away filling my limit with spoonies. Amazingly enough, once the ducks are cleaned and cooked I have yet to find ANYONE who can pick them out from the other birds. The worst tasting ducks I have ever eaten were mallards off of our farm ponds in the early season. Those suckers gotta be smoked to get rid of the pond scum flavor. Any other closet spoonie assasins?
