I am member of small group who can hunt waterfowl on small area near Hull England UK ( Not EU now thank goodness )
I took our Cocker Spaniel with me and few steel shot No4's may be USA 3's not sure on that.

We sat there and I had flask of coffee to keep warm and saw nothing.
It started to get fairly dark when couple of Teal came in to land on a splash of water just in front of me.
Well up went the Shadow Indy semi auto and spat out some steel but the right hand of the pair flew off! the second shot killed the left one in the air and Skye ( cocker ) darted in the water to retrieve.

It was smaller than I thought not enough for a family meal here!
I dressed it and baked it for about 20 minutes and shared it with my wife not at all bad.
Went to the same spot last night had coffee again but only saw a Marsh Harrier what a nice way to spend a few hours, no ducks no geese.
Wish there was a door from my house to Montana, the hinges would be worn out...

Congrats on the teal.
I carry a gun because a cop is to heavy.

Average response time for a 911 call is 10 min.
Average response time for a .45acp is 900FPS.

Remember, if you're not pissing off a liberal......You are one!

When you only have one it's time for duck soup. Celery, carrots, chicken stock and wild rice, throw the whole bird in(less the head, feathers and inerds and when falling off the bone peel the meat and skin off so you don't lose a speck, thicken slightly with cornstarch. I batch of warm buttered American butttermilk biscuits/English buttermilk scone.

Dice up the heart, liver and gizzard meat and saute with equal amounts of diced onion in butter, season to taste and serve on buttered toast points

Teal are outstanding on the table.

Do you have a larger American Cocker spaniel or the smaller what we call the English cocker. I'm a big fan of the smaller English cocker it is one of the toughest little bird dogs out there. I'm a retired spaniel hunt test judge and just fell in love with the little guys. It really surprises a lot of people on the quality of their water work.

After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Make mine a Minaska.
