No more ethics!!!

Postby greenhead5622 » Wed Jan 02, 2013 10:33 am

So i have a "friend" who went out to the green river him and his brother and between the two of them they shot 42 ducks in a day!! He told me 90 percent of the ducks he shot just floated down the river and he didnt even try to get them. I might let a few ducks get away but i at least try to retrieve all my ducks. Than to shoot that many in a day is just ridiculous. No ethics what so ever or respect for the birds. :mad: :mad:

Bad form! That kind of behavior makes us all look bad. One bad apple DOES spoil the whole bunch.

What everybody else said. Report him! I don’t know how it was last year as I am new to Utah but it seems that this kind of thing has been happening a lot this year. Within the last two days my dog has retrieved 4 alive winged birds that I have not shot. 1 one day and 3 in another at various WMA's. I understand not everybody has a dog but come on people at least put in an effort. These birds were not even in hard spots to get two. 2 were in the middle of a dike, one was on a small canal, and one in the middle of a frozen marsh which you could easily walk out on to. Either people are not following their shot and not watching the bird go down or they are seeing it fly and land 200 yards away and are just too lazy to walk their butts over and pick the dang thing up. As I recall, the reg says you have to make an effort to retrieve all downed birds. This clearly is not happening . :mad:

If you don't have a dog you have no business hunting a river unless you can make the retrieve either wading or with a boat. This sort of thing drives me crazy WHAT A WASTE!!!! Friend or foe this person needs to be reported!
