So, call our opener the Washington Teal Season!

We could have held out for mallards... and maybe got 3 or 4 more. They were around, but just not abundant. So I'm glad we went ahead and took our opportunities! The teal made for a fun morning! We even got 3 blue wings!


2 mallards, 1 pintail, 3 widgeon, and teal. 4 guns.

Now that’s a good lookin tailgate!!! Nice job!

Same here with the teal. So hard to pass up opportunity. Finished real quick because I wanted to chase coho during the morning. Mallards and wigeon started moving while picking up. Same thing every year but I get can't help it.

My brief afternoon hunt yielded 6 birds, but one widgeon snorkeled away from me in the flooded marsh grass. Saw an eagle scoop one out on the open water a while later, which was probably that bird.

Ended with a mixed bag of 4 widgeon, 1 mallard, and 1 Pintail. The ratio of Pintail to other species on the marsh is insane right now. Very few mallards

Another quick shoot this morning with a little bit more patience. Really surprised how few people are out. Bacon wrapped breasts and Anaheim poppers for the game today
