I'm Calling BS on That....
For fun let's make a list of things repeated by waterfowlers that are just utter rubbish. Let's put the type of erroneous things watefowler's say merely because they heard it from someone else without ever questioning the validity. I'll start.

"Look at the red legs on that fella. New arrival."
"Duck numbers are down. Flyway has shifted west a state or two."
"Not eating no diver. Taste like fish."

This list could get loooooong......

"And when a flock of bluebills, pitching pondward, tears the dark silk of heaven in one long rending nose-dive, you catch your breath at the sound, but there is nothing to see except stars. This same performance, in daytime, would have to be looked at, shot at, missed, and then hurriedly fitted with an alibi."
Aldo Leopold in Sand County Almanac

"Insert species" taste like crap.

I call BS: I've eaten coots, buffies, spoonies, GEs, mergies, etc., and found them all edible if properly prepared. That said, mergies prepared improperly are pretty hard to handle!!!

Cook the ducks with a pine board, then throw the ducks away and eat the board.

Brand X camo is much better than Brand Y camo.

All the ducks already flew to the coast.

All the ducks are still inland.

The ducks aren't coming to water, they are all in the corn fields.

The ducks will fly when the tide turns.

Those ducks will decoy to us if we fix the decoy spread.

Those guys over there are all skybusters.

I'll practice my calling before the season this year.

That duck turned when I called.

I don't care if we shoot any ducks, it's just nice to be out here.

I ate every eider I ever shot.

Naw, ducks don't use this marsh or crick or pothole.

trust me, I am just out for a drive; I never have seen any ducks in this area.

these binoculars are for watching Baltimore Orioles and Eagles. Ducks ??? I have never seen any ducks around here.

Ducks love the rain.

Hunting stinks on blue bird days.
