anyone waterfowl hunt? I've shot 1 duck in the past 2 years but I just got lucky. It's probably one of the toughest archery challenges that I've attempted.

I’ve tried but have not completed the task so the quest continues for me as well.  Sam has though.  He will be along shortly I reckon

I bowhunted Tundra Swans most of the 90s. A lot of work - very specific set up - I took groups. My best group of 11 bowhunters bagged 9 swans on a two day hunt. Eastern NC.

No, I have enough trouble taking them with a shotgun.

Do you decoy them? Decoying greenheads n black ducks is often like shooting at incoming helium balloons. Be a relatively easy shot time to time. Pass shooting is another story.  When fellows do that I don’t go but hitting one with an arrow that way would be a feat

The only one that I've gotten. I was decoying them. I will admit after flinging a dozen arrows I got frustrated and picked up the shotgun. Even when decoying them it's a ridiculously difficult challenge in my opinion.
