Congrats to 10-year old Legare (pronounced La-gree) Walpole's first ever duck. The hen mallard was harvested on Saturday Jan. 29 - the next to last day of duck season. Hunting at Abbapoola Hunt Club, Walpole used a 20-gauge Remington 870 that he just received at Christmas to put down the hen that has had her last quack. Mentor Dan Hydrick shot a black duck the same day, and Walpole held it up for the photo. Hydrick also reports that Legare is now ruined for life as he is hooked on waterfowl hunting!
