Curious how your inflatable kayaks held up. First trip? Had them a while? Looks like you gave them a good test

Those are actually a local guy’s that we used. Not mine personally. He has had them for years and years, they are extremely durable. He did a DIY hunt in Alaska to kill his king eider and harlequins. Those blue kayaks have been in Bristol Bay of the Bering Sea killing ducks

Over the years we’ve had hunters take a few in Saskatchewan, I’ve never had the good fortune to take one myself. Really pretty birds.

They're a pretty easy duck to shoot in central CA in the late season when they are on their way back up. When I guided in NE California they would breed in the valley and float on the spring creek all day eating mayflies 40 feet from my boat, but they usually left before our opener in mid October.

They are a beautiful duck, but funny thing is that their bills are "almost" like those of a spoony when compared to a blue wing or a green wing.

I shot my first one in the late 70's as my last bird of the day right before closing time on the last day of the season. It was a great afternoon shoot with 6 drake pintails and the cinnamon.

Post a photo of the mount if you get the chance.

We are lucky enough to have a taxidermist in our part of the state that has won multiple world championships in waterfowl taxidermy. Here is a teal trio mount that he did. Going to try to kill a stud blue wing this year and get him to mount me a trio like this

Are you forgetting Pacific Eider? May as well get that in Alaska too.

Pacific Eider and Common Eider are one in the same

Does that make the Aleutian green wing teal and a regular green wing teal the same? Aleutian teal and Pacific eiders are colored differently than the common variety. They may be the “same” but they are different.

The Aleutian teal are recognized as different and not included in the 41, I don’t make the rules grin

I’m certainly not going to turn down the opportunity to shoot a common Eider in Alaska labeled as a pacific.

Just like I won’t turn down the opportunity to shoot pacific Brant even though I’ve shot Atlantic Brant

I'll admit it, I don't know my ducks. But when I was guiding caribou hunts on Adak Island (far west Aleutians) I had several hunters who would go shoot some ducks; Lots of harlequins, teal, etc..

After one of my hunters got home to California he called me all exited; his taxidermist informed him that a couple of the ducks he shot were some sort of Asian teal. I guess other Asiatic ducks make their way to Adak also.

I have shot Eurasian widgeon and tufted ducks on Adak. I saw some diver ducks I could not identify. Still not sure what they were. Definitely a mixing area of Asian birds.
Coondagger be sure to apply for an Emperor Goose Non-resident permit. Alaska drawing permits . Only 25 non Res permits a year, but what a dream bird. If you ever want to do a DIY hunt for Alaska waterfowl PM me. I have done it all. I can point you in the right direction on maybe even set you up for a good hunt.

Thank you for the offer sir, I will shoot you a message!

I agree the emperor is definitely worth applying for, that is a gorgeous bird. A tufted duck is an awesome accomplishment, one I will probably never have a shot at. Congratulations on those birds!
