We are paying big bucks to kill our ducks and now these guys are shooting some of them." "That's not how pawpaw did it. I don't want to do it that way and they shouldn't either!"
I like how folks say they don't work anymore. Then why outlaw them?? If you don't like them then don't use them. You like diet pepsi then drink it.
I can see a lot of truth in the above statement.
Do I own a SWD? No, IMO, they seem to more headache than they are worth. I've seen in certain situations where SWD seem to flare off birds (especially woodies). I don't think they need to be banned, just because other hunters who don't use them are crying about it.
To me, this whole arguement is no different than the liberal jackasses who are pushing for assault weapons and high capacity mags to be banned. Just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it should be banned. It would be just like someone crying "I can't blow a cut down call, and you shouldn't either, so let's ban them!!!". "They're too loud, and it's unfair because the ducks can't here my call over the cut-downs!!!"
