Check out their pics and watch the video. I'd say 50 hens per year apiece for those boys is probably conservative.

I had the unfortunate opportunity of having these boys set up on the same marsh as me this morning. I noticed a few things about their hunting style

1. they showed up around 7:20, shooting light was at 6:45.
2. they insisted/tried to set up on an island 40yds from my spread which I unkindly told them that wasn't going to happen, so they set up on the far north end of the marsh (mind you the size of the marsh may be 100yds long, so every sky-bust I ate their bb's).
3. they hunted over 6 goose floaters, two mallards, and a robo set up a yard or two off the bank
4. one guy howled on his call in a wha wha wha wha wha wha wha wha wha wha wha whaaaaaa fashion all morning while the other did some sort of call that sounded like a latino rolling his r's in attempt to do a feeder chuckle.
5. every group of birds I had swingin into my spread they sky-busted at, one shot had to be pushing 90-100yds
6. they shot one merganser and claimed it was a redhead
7. their "pro-staff" dog wouldn't fetch any of the three birds they wounded, but was great at retrieving a tennis ball
8. and my favorite, was watching them flail around trying to get back into their cover while howling at what they thought was a group of honkers, it was a group of migrating seagulls.

Overall, it was a depressing site to see. A group that prides themselves on "conservation" needs to reassess their values and the way they approach fowl hunting on and off the marsh. I am all for guys getting out there and getting after it, but there is a right way and wrong way to go about it and their approach is definitely the wrong one. Somehow I was able to scratch out some green from the mess.

relax guys, i'm sure they are just trying to ruffle some feathers so that they can get picked up for a reality show. there ain't no bad publicity, after all. If i was a producer, I'd put them on tv in a heartbeat and plug them into a poor man's version of survivorman or man vs wild where they have to first survive a fall from an aircraft without the use of a parachute before braving the unforgiving wilderness of benton lake nwr.

I recognized one of them from their posted pics while packing out. The decal of the oversized spoonie was on their truck as well. That drake gaddy and d wigeon were my last two birds. Couldn't hold out for mallards any longer, had to take what I could get once the show arrived.

klarbel noticed today somebody posted up on their facebook page your account of their hunting trip in your marsh. Of course they deleted it, but not before I was able to capture some screen caps of their responses. As follows:

Waterfowler maybe hash this out like men. If you are a real man that is. Gotta say pretty tough throwing our name around over a website. Lets be honest your probably still pissed of because we turned you down when you asked us to take you on a hunt last month and now you clearly have a chip on your shoulder. Your making yourself look like a jackass on a social media site for everyone to see. Keep talking pal were not going anywhere."

Go back down to the basement of your moms house and keep practicing. Maybe next week you can come up with something a little more believe able."

Maybe I'm mistaken, but the truck in the parking lot did have their big ass decal on the back window. Them or not, it's not helping their name.
