I Thought the bullhead was the Iowa state fish?
all you have to do is take possesion.. is it "wanton waste" to pitch a merganzer.. NO. as long a you retreive it and count it as "bagged" .
i know this b/c i donate alot of my geese to the state park to be used as eagle food.. i could use them for coyote bait but i dont... if you dont beleive me read up on the requirements.
Like I said before, that is not legal everywhere, anymore. But, you are right, the Federal definition of wanton waste only has to do with making a reasonable effort to retrieve downed game and taking said game out of the field with you. State laws are sometimes more restrictive, however, as in the new law Delaware passed for this year. There is now a state wanton waste law which makes it illegal to not use the birds/animals for food or fur.
What if you shoot a crow
"Crow Pie" ya silly....
Wow... eight pages worth. Crongrats on the hunt fellers
-I had some friends make stew...I was not impressed....
-I completely agree...its amazing how many posts this generated...
Impressive, hope you used a calculator to count them all!
i agree 100% with you on this one. I am not saying its wrong to jumpshoot and kill that many geese because i have done it. Well not that many anyway and thats why im congratulating you boys on a hell of a shoot. Now, I consider one snowgoose over decoys better than your 1200. The thought of tricking just one smart snow into the decoys does more for me. We mostly decoy hunt snows but like i said i occasionally jumpshoot when its real slow. From February 1st through March 1st we hunted strickly weekends over spreads of 300 to 700 decoys and killed approximently 172 snows. Out of these 172 birds only 12 of them were juvies. So the adults can be decoyed and they can be killed over decoys. It does take some skill as far as decoy placement. You cannot just throw all your decoys into a ball and expect to kill birds. it dont work that way. They in my opinion are the smartest of waterfowl that we have to date. It takes skill to fool these basstards. But once again congrats on the kill boys and keep stackin em
love it allstar. good work enough said @ 1205
