i agree ducks unlimited is really messing us up.
They're not keeping farmers from buying it in most cases, they're keeping hunters from buying it. Last minute bids with the DU's pocketbook to buy the land is very dishonest if you ask me. Gunner nailed it. If the govt keeps these safe zones from being hunted every now and then, the ducks will know exactly where to go and where not to go. We hunt right by a federal WMA and the ducks have just flown over us the last few years to set where they know it's safe. Open them up!mntrapper said:Sorry guys but DU is one of the best things that has ever happened for waterfowl and many other animals. If it were not for DU there would not be the number of ducks around as there is now. Restoring wetland is the best thing that they do. They buy land to restore it or keep it a ducky place.
DU Sux- what is the problem with DU from buying land with the gov because it is a very big possibility that if another farmer buys that land that it will be drained and that will lead to less ducks
Having areas that you can not hunt are good too. The birds do need areas where they will not be bothered
I just do not under stand why some of you guys think that DU is a bad thing.
