    Scoters in South Florida - 1/5/13

    Havent posted any duck reports from this year so far but weve been having a pretty good season. Quite a few limits of ringers/teal, a couple redheads, a few pintails, ruddys, mottled ducks, blue bills, etc...
    I shot something this morning I never would have imagined could make it this far south, a pair of black scoters. We were hunting bluebills when I had a group of 20 large divers come in, I peeled out 2, a drake and a hen. Looked them up online and it shows their migration starting up around Newfoundland and only making it as far south as about Maine. Pretty cool, they'll be on the wall soon. Also, my girlfriend killed her first duck this morning....good hunt.

    Took a small wrong turn. Good job on the rare birds.
