I am curious how many of you have them in your states and what you think about them.

They let birds go here but i dont know how often or how many. Some guys i met last year killed one with a little backpack radio from LSUS. I think its fine, the more the merrier.

Think about it this way, if you take pen raised duck which essentially is domestic and release them into the wild how easy will disease spread between them for example avian flu? I don't like it for many reasons but that is my number one.

I have serious reservations of mixing the superior gened wild ducks with the tamer ones.

I think released birds are causing a decline in the abilities of predators. As time goes on they will be unable to capture wild birds. These pen birds are so easy to catch eventually we will have to set up a subsistence system for foxes, raccoons, skunks etc. The wild bird population will explode and waters will turn into duck poop soup. Hugh algae blooms will kill off native fish species, global temperatures will rise as sea levels fall....
I also the pen raised are a little more tender. :laughing:

If you want to shoot a pen raised bird why even open the pen just go in the pen and shoot one. IMO
Everyone must believe in something and I believe I'll go hunting. When men bond something must die.

shooting pen raised birds is technically like shooting wylie geese here by aberdeen cuz they never fly higher than the trees and they will come to just a call....no thrill to that at all....imo
Just making my way the only way i know how!
