    Here you get dinged for chucking a non breasted bird, a deer with just the back straps gone (and still with quarters on), etc. You gotta take the usage portions customarily consumed or some such thing before dumping a carcass.

    It makes me sick when I read about such things.

    Part of the problem is that some hunters have a very lax attitude towards them being the liberal season to help thin the flocks. And further, some have a disdain for them and call them Sky Carp mainly perpetuated by the barrel sticker toting young guns these last 15 yrs. :mad:

    If you are a "hunter" you harvest and eat (or give away) the edible meat. It does matter if a deer, goose, or turkey, etc.

    Where as "shooters" do not give a crap and often waste a fair amount of meat or dump the whole carcasses.
    As far as I'm concerned they are poachers, no different than the deer poachers where they take the antlers and let the body lay. People like this should have their hunting privileges revoked for life US wide.


    BTW, IMHO Snow meat tastes a LOT better than the Canada goose meat does. :yes

    It is my understanding, that once you remove the birds from the field, you can do what ever you want with them. Dumping them in a waterway (or anything else) is the illegal part.

    That is not true for every state, DE being an example.
