FIFYThe thing that got me was the fact that if we hadn't been there, the majority of the birds would have landed near us and he wouldn't have gotten the shots that he did. He wold have sat watched flock after flock land on the flat un-molested. I HATE that. I would rather watch someone else shoot birds than watch a hundred birds get in a refuge un-touched.
Really? I do want to watch birds land in different spots it means they Are here and are using the marsh. I don't root against the other guys but I'd rather he don't show up of all the ducks get shot at by me. There are places in my marsh I know the ducks go and I have seen them land there for years based on time of day, season, tide, and wind and whether they are mallards of pintails. I let the birds rest so they will stick around. I can only hunt them with help from brother pushpoling us in across the marsh when the waters high or if someone wanted to drop someone off with a pine tree and a pallet but the division of the squad, danger, and sacrifice of someone having to guide usually just keeps us together. That's for blind shy birds. As for woodies I'd definitely not want to see people shooting while I wood duck hunt they shouldn't have any business being there its. Summer ducks are special. We usually only get one or two good chances at them in the marsh but we get aggressive and go way up in there where they come to land
I'm opposite of Mudgun I like to watch birds and keep a mental log. Whether or not ducks die doesn't bother me, but I plan on our team dpi g the only shooting. I'd rather see 10 million ducks and not abhor the gun then see other hunters or bass boats
