Spur wig ducks are ducks

One of the bounties is to kill ducks with an assault rifle. Well isn't a Spurwing duck, a duck? Why don't they count towards the bounty?

    Some say because there is no such thing, they are really spurwing geese and the game got it wrong. You are completely correct that they don't count. Only region 1 and 6 have ducks that count, region 6 only has one 10 duck hunt. If you want you can shoot 9 of the 10, fail hunt, and repeat until bounty is done.

    Despite the name in the game, Spurwings are technically geese.
    Technically, they are African too.
    At least in the game they are shaped like geese instead of ducks...
    Try region 1 or preferably 6 for the bounty.

    I got them in HR 2. There are other regions, but I can't remember exactly where.

    HR3 has ducks as well.

    Spurwing Ducks are in regions 5 and 10, and HR2. Normal ducks are in regions 1 and 6, and HR3.

    Thank you I found them in hr2 and r10 the bird hunts are among my favourites in the game

    Yeah I like them as well, especially trying to do them with a bow. Also, because I'm a little bit OCD, it really bugs me that R16 featured pheasants - if it had featured Bar-headed goose instead (which is reasonable for the Caspian Basin) there would be two standard regions for each type of bird. Oh well...

    I found it fun to use the Christmas chaingun ARs like the Kringle to shoot the ducks for the bounty.
