No we arent involved in teh raising ducks. That is a private venue, mostly preserves. I am not too keen on the idea. It is a bandaid on teh problem with our area.
The reason bird #s are low is not b/c they arent being raised here it is b/c they dont have as much natural food and habitat. If we actually started caring aobut waht we are doing to our area (i.e., streams, wetlands, riparian areas) we would see an improvement.
This is WAY too big of a problem for VAWFA, sorry. Even DU woudl ahve a hard time fixing it b/c it goes to so many political pockets it is not even funny...every level of politician has say in it and their constituency has a say...actually whoever has the most $$$ has the say.
So in short, I am not for pen raised birds (ducks that is), I have no problem raising some pheasant or chukar (they are not native and were not historically here and now gone b/c loss of habitat).
stepping down from soap box.
I SUPPORT SUNDAY HUNTING IN VIRGINIA!!
