I can’t pretend to be some kind of great duck hunter. These birds are released mallards in an impoundment owned by the South Carolina Waterfowl Association. They don’t act like the usual tamies (they are blind shy), but they certainly ain’t wild.
Usually very few tamies are shot in this spot. It’s very common to get a limit of wild ringnecks, bluebills, redheads, etc, but they haven’t shown up this year yet.
