Honestly, unless you are a die hard waterfowler is the juice worth the squeeze to start from scratch in today's climate? We tend to look at it through our duck camo colored glasses. It is hard enough to get kids involved in deer hunting, let alone the extras needed for waterfowl. Throw on top of that trying to identify birds on the wing so you do not shoot the wrong species or sex of duck, and what limits of what species and sex you can have on hand plus how to interpret a hybrid in this so you don't get fined. Then there are other statues you have to know about, and even if you do know them they may get interpreted differently. Last week a bunch of kids (half were new to waterfowl) got popped for hunting in a Expanded Safety Zone ($500 fine each) on Thanksgiving while goose hunting. The Expanded Safety Zone per Statue 10-140 (g) (2) is only active during school hours or at a time when a school–approved activity is taking place. The School and offices were officially closed on Thanksgiving and this school had no school-approved activities on that date per their official web page and online calendar which was checked before hand. I loaned gear to help get them all out there. Those new kids will not be back to try waterfowl again, and the parents are faced with a paying $500 fine per kid or taking a day off work and the kid out of school to attend court. What do you think they see through their non-hunter glasses? I'm sure they share their experience with their non-hunter friends and people feel like it is too much trouble and too much money. Go play with the Xbox that was already paid for last Christmas, just don't buy too much content upgrades.
