Monster Wood Duck invades NY creek
« on: March 28, 2014, 09:58:14 PM »
the ducks have arrived here in NY so I came out of my winter trail cam hibernation and put out some cams. after making the rounds last week I was both amazed and frightened at what one of my creekside units had captured.

the wood duck drake appears to dwarf the large evergreen tree along side and seems to be taking up half of the width of the creek. estimates put him at 3 meters wide and roughly 500 lbs.

not sure I want to go back to that set being that there is a genetic mutant fowl on the prowl. might have to take the shotgun along next time and swap out the #6's with OO buckshot.  :D

I'm guessing anyone who doesn't believe in God has never seen a wood duck drake up close - no way something that beautiful was a result of random chance.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Beautiful birds for sure.  And I love how they splash in when they land. They make me laugh.
