I was reading the harvest report from last year in my state and was suprised to see how many shovelers were taken. Do any of you guys shoot them? I mean on purpose. I have seen a lot earlier in Oklahoma but I never shot one. I wouldn't think they are very good to eat.

Never seen one to shoot and I don't think we have them around here though I may be wrong. Would probably hunt them if they were here.

Keep the sport alive take a kid hunting/fishing.

I'm with bgoldhunter. I shot one years ago and it tasted like crap. I never have shot one again. I'm not looking down at anyone that does so don't anyone get that idea. I was just suprised to see how many were harvested. Like bgoldhunter said it counts in my limit so I just don't.

I haven't been shooting them the past couple of years. I have no problem with anybody shooting them. I don't particularly enjoy eating them. They have a bad reputation as not being a premium bird out here in California. But they splash when they fall, just like the rest. I have had a lot of fun shooting them for years at my old club.

I would, but we dont see them very often here in New England. I have seen a few but only in the springtime.
