:salude: surf ox,
It's not to worry. Geese float in a current too! Coal tailings won't hurt them or us if we eat one that's been loafing there for months. They would not stay on tainted water. Drinking water with a little magnatite mixed in makes the feathers on their chests sprout hair. :laughing:
Waterfowl get a stigma about where they loaf sometimes. Waterfowl are seen on pig farm slurry pits too.
You never know where that last limit of ducks came from.
Mackey Bend is the end of the road,.....Point Township in Posey County. When the Ohio is 30 ' and the Wabash is at 10 ' it's 6-7' feet deep in the middle. The Poke Boat would be out of place there. Big water calls for big boats with an eye on the weather forecast.
Mackey Bend only gets in the news when hunters get in trouble.
#1 If a falling duck's head is "held up" shoot again.
#2 If a downed duck lays still on the water with it's head "held down" straight out and you detect ANY movement across the current or not with the wind shoot again.
