I agree birds have a lot more options to find water, and hunters aren’t the only ones with ice eaters. We are probably minority with ice eaters. So many farmers, private residential homes, and developments with retention ponds run them now. I always have always wondered how it is illegal ,bating, to put food in the water, but putting water on the food is legal? 2+3=5 but 3+2 does not =5 Makes you scratch your head or look at the size of your wallet.
