Hey brother, you should really watch what you post on the internet, Game Warden buddy or not! That's a FEDERAL Migratory Bird...straight off the AGFC website:
Legal Hunting Equipment
Waterfowl may be taken only with shotguns 10-gauge and smaller that are rendered incapable of holding more than three shells, archery equipment and muzzleloading shotguns.
While waterfowl hunting, the only type of shot that may be in the hunterís possession are: steel, tungsten-iron (Hevi-Steel), tungsten-polymer, tungsten-matrix, tungsten-iron-nickel-tin (TINT), tungsten-nickel-iron (Hevi-Shot), tungsten-bronze-iron (TBI), tungsten-tin-bismuth (TTB) or bismuth-tin or such shot approved as nontoxic by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Hunters may use only nontoxic shot size T (.2-inch diameter) and smaller when hunting waterfowl and coots. Other migratory birds (doves, rails, woodcock, snipe, moorhens and gallinules) may be taken with size T and smaller nontoxic shot or size BB (.18-inch diameter) and smaller lead shot.
I think what you meant to say is you were shooting your own domestic ducks.
And yes I know most COPs /Wardens are hypocrites, so we'll leave it at that.
