Teal

Hunting

Blue teal on the water

Blue-winged teal are second only to mallards as the most numerous duck in North America. Blue-winged teal are among the earliest ducks to migrate south during fall and the latest to head north during spring. Teal stay in Missouri a relatively short time, so the best hunting usually occurs when cold fronts bring winds favorable for migration.
