If that one doesnt go on the wall, nothing will. I am from there, let me know if you find out who killed it.
is there a Sam's club near Marksville? Looks like someone spilled their spearment snowball.
look like a dock duck to me
Saw this a few days ago. I spoke with a guy who's friend shot it. He was told that it was a mallard-canvasback hybrid. I don't know how that's possible. I personally think it's just some type of genetic mutation. Just passing on the word. I was told it was shot in Jennings.
It's a farm duck that flew away. There are several different color variations of mallards that are bred in captivity. This particular duck is called a black mallard. There's also snowy mallards, blonde mallards, etc. I think they crossbreed mallards with cayugas or black east indies ducks. Both of those are very similar to mallards and have green and black feathers that cover the entire bird (google it). Very cool for someone to have shot it while hunting though. But it definitely isnt a mallard canvasback hybrid. You ever see anything green on a canvasback?
I was skeptical about it being a hybrid but didn't want to change another man's story. I'd have to agree with you though, after googling and looking at some pics I agree. I also happen to know that there is a year round farm raised duck hunting establishment in the Jennings area that is more than likely where it came from. Thanks for shedding some light.
I was told that it was killed in Wax Lake. Definitely looks like a cayuga-mallard.
That gas pump is really bothering me. It only has two grades of gas, Iíve only seen pumps with three.
Quite possibly the neatest mutation I have ever seen. Better than Wolverine.
i was told few weeks back that someone from the spillway shot it .i hunt in the wax havent heard that one yet but i believe someone shot that thing in a neighborhood pond !!
I hunt the wax, spillway, AND marsh, and I have never seen a duck as pretty or unique as that! It could be fresh off the farm and it would still have a place up on my wall!
That is one UGLY duck!!
Funny to hear all the locations where it was allegedly shot. I've heard everything from Delacroix to Marksville to Alabama. What's actually true? Does anyone really know?
You guys are worse than a bunch of damn drunk women! Who cares about where or species? Bottom line...it was shot, as lucky or rare as it may be, and would make one hell of a wall mount and conversation piece.
Congratulations to the hunter who bagged this duck!
Its funny i know the guy that shot this duck. i was at the hospital a few days ago to see my freinds new born baby, and when his step father arrived he showed me this exact picture on his cell phone. That green mallard was killed in the marksville louisiana area. Its funny to log on and see the same picture i saw on a cell phone only a few days ago.
Solid green mallards. Must have been a site in the air. A trophy for sure.
