Scaup limits mean hunters must identify ducks carefully
The Rev. Paul Larson, an ardent duck hunter from Deer River, remembers the good old days of bluebill hunting.
"It's nothing like it used to be," Larson said this past week with Minnesota's duck season just around the corner. "I used to shoot -- oh, from about Oct. 20 to the middle of November -- I'd get bluebills all the time. Now, if I get two a year, I'm lucky."
