Not only are they one of the best looking ducks, they are one of the best eating as well. More times than not there will be a Pintail or two in my photos. These magnificent birds love to decoy, making for some excellent shot opportunities. I almost feel bad when I shoot a drake Pintail before mid to late December, because they haven't plumed fully and their sprigs are short. There really isn't a prettier duck than a full plumed Pintail, in my opinion. They are certainly one of my favorites.
Pretty random post I know, but enough of the Corona, politics and race riots. I'm ready to start reading hunt stories and seeing some photos again.
I agree Rob! Just got mine back from Longun about a month ago. Only bird I insisted my wife will HAVE to look at in our living room 🤣 She had no choice in the matter... I had no choice but to put the snow I picked up at the same time in my work office.
To me they are the most beautiful bird out there. They are so streamlined and aerobatic. When they commit they come in hot. I love just watching them. They usually start their courtship flights about the last week of the goose season. Simply spectacular.
Even with the low limit we are just lucky to watch the show.
