That rule would be impossible to enforce, heck they cant even enforce the 30 minute before sunrise shooting times. opening day 5 groups of idiots were shooting 15 minutes early. I called a GW 3 times and never even got a call back. I do believe if they went back to a 3 bird limit, it would knock a lot of the Duck Dynasty hunters out of the sport. Id rather shoot 3 birds and have a quality hunt than a 6 bird limit and have every body and their brother out there messing it up for everyone

Just the opposite actually, I have continued to come to KS for a number of reasons, one being the amount of quality waterfowlers we come across. The point I was trying to make is that a few bad apples, residents or not contribute to the majority of the problems. Everyone seems to remember the few jerks that ruin a hunt but never compliment the group across the way that let birds work, killed green, and didn't cause any problems. The few issues we have run into on the water, here at home or across several states in our flyway that We choose to hunt always, always, always come from a group that don't hunt like you and I. That's we're jealousy comes into play...the guys that are shooting at high passing birds will never kill as many birds as the guys that do it right, and when they don't they get upset and blame it on the trucks at the ramp that don't have license plates that look like theirs. Like you I am lucky enough to hunt with residents that know the birds in the area. I think we are coming from the same place. You say don't paint with a wide brush and lump all KS residents in the same, poor, category. I challenge you to do the same with nonresidents. You are right when you say that KS has become a destination for nonresidents lately and the more you get the bigger chance you have to find bad apples. Unfortunately the glamorization of waterfowling in recent years has changed our sport. That is out of our control. we must adapt, continue to hunt the way we were taught, and hope the recent trends go by the wayside and those guys go back to deer hunting. I really hope to meet some of you guys this week.
