Goose season is open let them go shoot geese if they want to hunt. If they are going to have something like this, I wish it would be more contolled and the ages would be younger(under 12) or something to that effect.

That statement is just ludicrous...If you actually put the time in on youth waterfowl and teach them about safety, calling, decoy placement, and bird identification how is taking them out during a youth waterfowl hunt turning them into just a duck hunter??? That's great that you take your kids out during the regular season but a youth waterfowl day is suppose to be just about them. It is also about taking a kid out that may not be able to get a chance, if not for a youth waterfowl hunt...But to each their own.
I for one do believe in youth waterfowl hunts and took a coworkers daughter out this morning and had a great time!! She shot her limit of wood ducks and a goose and we called it a day. She had a blast and is a waterfowler for life. Not to mention it gave the dog a nice warm up for opener!!

A waterfowler loves every aspect of it down to breaking ice around the blocks the last day of the season...if you get butt hurt about the future members of DU and delta taking 2 to 3 of "your" ducks or pushing them one more county forcing you to scout you are in the wrong sport it's all about passing it on!! Just my opinion
