color blind/ unable to identify species


Recommended Posts

I ran into a personal problem i should say im color blind not totally i can see most of the colors except when mixed together. Is there any way to identify ducks besides color?

I am going dove hunting and will get my early geese license in case some of them Canadians (geese) fly bye I think i can identify those but if i cant i just wont shoot.

i have the exact same thing going, i see colors fine but a few colors really throw me, purple and pink for example. i bought a black truck one time a few weeks later when i got the title card i found out it was purple lol. anyway usually early on in the season the birds are pretty dirty and don't have much color to offer, so i would pay more attention to body size, shapes - tailfeather shapes, and what they look like while in flight.

IDind ducks if tuff when they come whipping through the dekes. (even if you can see colours.) smile.gif Body size and shape help. I also look at the shape of the head, where the wings are, and how they beat there wings. It's a lot to think about when they are coming at you at a 1000 miles per hour. grin.gif But like you said if I can't get a positive ID I don't shoot. Good luck.

They have id charts which tell how to ID them. If you think confused.gif you can tell the difference between a dove and a goose I'd get right on it if I were you!! wink.gif

If you want to hunt geese while you are dove hunting, you will need to get some nontoxic shot for the dove loads. It is illegal to have any shot other than nontoxic with you while you are hunting waterfowl. The 7 or 8 sized lead shot for dove would make you illegal if you got checked by the man.

oh so i cant have both loads on me? i wonder if i have to different shotguns with different loads hmm. good point. I thought if i would see geese i would unload and load non toxic Geese loads and shoot but i guess i have to either pick one or the other huh...im going to write the dnr and see what they say

They will say the same thing as mpester said. No you can not do it. You can not possess toxic shot while hunting waterfowl period. You can get expert #7 steel shot pretty cheap. I used to pheasant hunt with steel shot and carry goose loads with me. Worked out great.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      Where are the opener fish pictures?

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
