Hypothetically speaking of course.
If I took my buddy teal hunting who had taken me fly fishing a bunch who had never been duck hunting before and he shot a Hen Pintail what would you automatically think? If the GW had been waiting for us would he let us explain, point a gun at us and arrest us, or tackle one of us? How does one interpret wanton waste in a situation like this?
It's not wanton waste it's taking Pintails during closed season.
Oh, he'll let you explain alright, but you'll be pressing down hard on the ticket book to get through all three pieces of carbon paper when you're done.
While you're explaining all of this the G.W. is going to be standing there wondering what the wife is going to fix for dinner later...and with the same interest in your story as listening about the sex life of a Jellyfish
Strictly hypothetical, we went over this scenario with my Dad. Dad, "We were spread out standing in the marsh. All of a sudden a flock of 6 or 7 Blue Wings come swooping in low fast and silent from my side headed straight for the mojo in front, perfect shot for everyone else to my left. I dont even have time to get my gun up but I YELL take 'em cuz its the first flock/ volley of the season we cant shoot the darn woodies theres no wind no ripples low tide and I knew we had to be aggressive. They shoot and knock down 2 birds. Everyone saw and said wooohooo blue wings Mr! We go to get the birds with the kayak. 1 is a big fat necked blue wing about 1.5 times the size of a GW, the other is the same size..... but its a small first year Hen Pintail.
You'll press down hard again Duckphysics
has it this way.
Wait 'til you have a flock of 25-30 Canvasback, Redheads and Bluebills together in a knot with the season closed on Canvasback.
