Mt question is, are you strictly talking birds you see hit the ground and can't find, or are you counting birds that you know you hit or saw feathers fly, but they still fly off. Are you counting those birds thinking they will or might die? No way I count that bird.

lol.. really.. you have no idea what your talking about.. your going off of an opinion that is in no way supported by anything scientific.

I take great offense at some dumb meddling Yankee boy scout even suggesting that I stop shooting shy of a limit.

Milo gulped down a teal once. The guys laughed it off and one very kind man spoke up and said that he must have been really hungry to gulp a whole duck down like the way he did. :lol3:
I felt better and thanks Kdude.

Now, who shot that duck sure as heck wasn't claiming it and did not count that duck in their bag cuz it was gone.
Gone gone. Burp.

So, who gets the ticket and what for? :wink:

Would the person have to claim that duck the next morning?

Say an eagle or a coyote runs onto the ice this winter and steals a cripple before I get to it.... am I supposed to claim that bird in my limit?

Only if you do the right thing - shoot the eagle.

No.
Assateague needs to explain why. Something about wild game belonging to everyone or no-one...something like that.

Myself, I'd say "what duck?" if asked about it.

It's a very dificult skill to perfect but I LOVE to say no and nod my head yes...It REALLY messes with people's heads.

There is a country in Eastern Europe that when you shake your head no, it means yes and vice-versa if you nod yes.
I come from there. :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

If everybody chose to shoot 3 birds under the limit, our hunting would be better, I guess, by your definition of better, would it not?

If you don't want to shoot hens, don't shoot hens. If you want to count a bird that might have caught a pellet in his ass as part of your bag limit, yep, you are free to do that and if it makes you happy :beer:

For me, sometimes I shoot hens and sometimes I do not. First duck of the morning, normally it is going to die or I'm going to make my best effort. If I already have a duck or two and for me that is a good day, Susie is probably, emphasis on probably, safe.

Our blinds tend to be elevated and I've seen many a duck, in range, center of pattern, keep on flying as if it were not hit. So shouldn't we count every bird we shoot at, just to be the most ethical person on the planet. For all you know, that bird is dead, so count it your bag limit and I know my hunting will be better.

I have to remember to take my video camera, I want to get a nice big fat hen paddling around in my decoys and blast it just to get under my more ethical brethren's skin. Especially the ones that probably shoot 10 times as many ducks as I do in a year and proclaim the virtues of their great restraint for the good of the species :tongue:

BTW, I am never going to count a duck or a goose that I did not find. NEVER. Of course, only a couple times a year would it make a difference if I did :sad:
