Thanks John,

Here's tip for getting the Wigeon's. It takes patience, I take a small collapsible chair with me and when I see a group of ducks feeding I slowly, approach until I get within a decent range and then sit down, set up and just wait. Usually the ducks swim away at first, but if I remain quiet and still they will usually return to that spot to continue feeding. It seems that it takes about 30 minutes for them to get comfortable with me being there. It paid off with the wigeon shots I posted. They got as close as 20 yards. Give it a try.

Best of luck,
