Yeah but I reckon yer not too much on bean infermed now er ya?
If ignorance is bliss, then something when wrong with you-you're no ball of sunshine, lemme tell ya.
I read that same article.
Look at all the species that killing the hens is not regulated, they are doing just as well, some better, than the Mallards. You can't blame Chiken, some people just feel that way about it. I know some deer hunters that refuse to kill does even though it doesn't hurt the herd and sometimes it is necessary to help it. They will kill a little puny spike, or a nice 6 point that would have made a spectacular buck in a few years, but won't kill a nice fat doe. I got no qualms with killing the legal limit of hens.

You're slippin there chiken, didn't you notice in the "Spoonie" thread that the kid was wearing facepaint in one of the pictures? You forgot to gig him on that one while you were on your self-righteous, judgemental little critique of him and his hunting habits. Way to foster harmony amoung hunters and give incouragement to the people that, like it or not, are the future of the sport we enjoy. Even if in your mind you think you are trying to "teach" him something about passing on the hens, which as you can see he knows there is no proof that it helps anything, you have a poor way of attempting to do it. As far as passing on the "trash ducks", that is nothing but more opinion and judgement on your part. Nothing more.
