Well no responses to this so I'll add something.
If you live here,and have had some time now to 'see' the problem.you'd appreciate it.
Hawks,skunks,coons,fox,coyotes,name it,is getting concentrated rapidly to the detriment of waterfowl and upland game.
Action will be needed.Sooner than later.As to hawks,owls,etc I doubt there ever will be the 'will' to reduce numbers but there still are things that can be done.For instance,urge a stopping of planting tall trees(ambush/blinds for birds of prey)in riparian buffers,CP 37 or 33 and so on.Just crazy to facilitate predation in programs designed,in part,to aid wildlife.
If planting yourself,at least think about it.
AND it is and will continue to worsen as more CRP goes out.Goes out BIG TIME this coming year.The answer that predators will 'eat themselves'into self control is absurd from a wildlife standpoint and please don't buy into it.Inherent in that argument is a major reduction in waterfowl and upland birds.
Verbally kick ass on Org or Dept officials any chance you get on this issue.
