How many have hunted a preserve or something similar? I have not and often wondered what the attraction was in paying $20 a bird. It's not hard to pay that much by the time you add up a season's expenses but why add to the expense? I grew up in KS and never understood why out of staters would drive to KS to shoot in a preserve when there were birds all over...just knock on somebody's door, be polite, pick up your trash and close the gates. I understand if that's the easiest place to access in a given area and I understand how this would be good gun dog training. Any other thoughts from those who have done it?
