With the ND opener so early this season there isnt going to be much color on the birds. Hard to pass on the hens if they all look like hens. It wont matter much to the younger or less experienced hunter, they look at numbers mostly anyway, but in my opinion not much color means not much satisfaction.
My little bro that was out this past weekend during the youth hunt had no probalem telling apart the drakes and hens. The drake mallards they shot were very noticable, with quite abit of green on there heads.
