Now that I've been in Montana over two decades, Sprig are rare trophies, so even more special. Mallards are beautiful but very common up here. Gadwall are so plain, I like the look of fully mature Green Wing Teal or Widgeon drakes, but pintail are special to me.

    My favorite is the Canvasback. The limit is one and usually "encountered" on a late season, more difficult hunt. My only duck mount is a pair of canvasbacks.

    I can remember every "Can" and what dog retrieved it. The first was in North Dakota by "Daisy" and the last was in Pool 13 of the Mississippi River by "Limit". The lone exception was a 'bull" that was "netted" via a tender boat.
