Hey, Do you think that duck hunting will be stopped this year because of the Avian Flu? :eek:

I've heard some things about it being a possibility, bust mostly i've heard that there is no threat. I dont think we'll know until those birds get back to the breeding grounds in canada

All i can say is i aint scared :thumbsup: :cool:

Just blown out of proportion like SARS ( not that it wasn't bad, But it didn't kill half the world and cauase mass heystaria like it was supposed to)

When these things come around, i just ignore them until there is actual PROOF that something really bad will happen.

Official: Bird flu threat will not change hunting

Associated Press
BISMARCK, N.D. - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has no reason to modify upcoming bird-hunting seasons because of the threat of bird flu, the agency's director says.

"From a wildlife standpoint, I have no interest or any reason to talk about curtailing or modifying any kind of hunting programs, waterfowl season or anything like that," Dale Hall said at the annual conference of the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. "We need to make sure our hunters are educated on proper sanitary techniques."

Hall said hunters should wear rubber gloves when cleaning birds, and cook the meat thoroughly.

"There may be sacrifices," he said. "I happen to be one who has always liked my duck a little rare rather than done."

Fish and Wildlife is monitoring birds in Alaska and will shift its monitoring efforts to the Pacific Flyway when waterfowl season opens, Hall said.

It will not be a significant threat, at least not this year. I bet you will see a lot of States, especially in the refuges that will want a number of ducks to get tested. There have not been any confirmed cases yet in the North American bird population. Remember the season is right around the corner in most places.

Nothing to worry about.
