Waterfowl hunting has been around for quite some time now. Harlequin, mallards, pintail, Canada geese, gadwall, canvasback, ruddy duck, redhead, snow geese, and the red-breasted merganser(which hunters often avoid due its strong flavor) are the most common variety of ducks and geese hunted in North America. Goldeneye, blackduck, bufflehead, blue wing teal, widgeon, shoveler, wood duck, green wing teal are also species of ducks hunted.
The ocean ducks include scoter, oldsquaw and theeider duck that are also a delicacy to those people living along the ocean. The High flyer duck on the other hand is historically considered a royal prerogative in the United States and the UK and are hence protected by these two states. In many other countries, however, they are hunted along with other wildfowl.
The geese and the ducks migrate to warmer areas in autumn to feed after they have finished raising their young ones. Autumn and winter are the waterfowl hunting seasons.October is the start of the hunting season while else January is marks the end. However, an extended goose hunting season may extend to April. The US Fish and wildlife service is the one that set the hunting seasons in the United States of America.
There are different ways of hunting the high flyer ducks. Use of The Kick’s High Flyer diagonally ported choke tubes is a favorite among many duck hunters. In other words, every duck hunter should have the Kick’s High Flyer. Since the equipment manufacturing is computer-assisted, the product is undoubtedly one of the finest. The gas vents are made through precision-cut diagonal slots thus creating an ultimate braking system that reduces the recoil by over twenty-five percent. The High Flyer also improves patterns and reduces muzzle jump for particularlyfaster, denser, and more precise subsequent shots.
Approximately two weeks to slaughtering, the duck needs to be fed on substantially more feed than what they normally require. This extra food must literally be forced on them. Traditionally, it is done mutually, however, today and due to technological advance, it is done using an electric equipment. The process is rather gentle and only takes a few moments, but it is regarded as a form of torture by most animal-lovers.
