You forgot to mention the 1000's of people after them.
N. Al., unfortunately, is now suffering from way too many hunters and too few places to go.
Not sure what quality of hunting you are used to, bot it's gone waaaaay down here over the last 10 years. Huntsville in particullar continues to grow, and the pressure has gotten to the point that people are camping for days just to hold an island to hunt. All that for a couple of gadwalls and a ringneck.
