Sea Duck 2013 Round II
The second sea duck venture of this season proved far more lucrative as both the scoters and eiders were moving early.
Although the coots were still flying in small numbers, the eiders arrived in larger flocks with some groups numbering in the high 40's and 50's. It became a bit difficult to monitor a surgical limit with the potential of secondary and tertiary incidentals.
A total of 14 ducks were taken with a full limit of eiders, five scoters, and the first merganser of the season that apparently seemed lost. On any account, another great day with my father was found and I now bear down on a visit to Central Maine for some puddle ducking action with my great pal Steve the Maine Outdoorsman.
Until then, have a great day.
