Default Hunt non traditional game?

Last year after a hunt noticed a bunch of ducks in shallow puddles near by. Spent a couple hours stalking the puddles with judo points and actually got a couple. Anyone else try anything like this?

Check your game laws. It is not legal in Ohio. Ducks are a federal bird.

Bow is a listed weapon in WA as long as you have proper licence and stamp. No restriction on federal either.

I have shot squirrels, rabbits and I have even shot a grouse. There are a lot of geese on one of the bases I hunt.......

We have grouse here, seen a few while out hunting but didn't want to fling a 25 buck arrow at them, have to keep a judo point in the quiver I guess.

I practise on rabbits or sparrows before going out, figured if I can wipe out a sparrow I should be ok hitting bigger stuff. Not always the case, but seeing a sparrow turn into a cloud of feathers does get the confidence levels up a tad

The squirrels here are protected believe it or not. Starlings and piegons are anytime critters out here as they do a lot of damage.

I have also been known to spot and stalk Nutria, Muskrats and the occational field rat. With the Nutria and Muskrats, you want to make sure you pin them to the ground or you will probably loose an arrow 'cuz they like to go to their den.
