    Don't know about what loads but I know where a bunch are sitting at in Wisconsin. Probably 200+ in fields I drove past today.

    Agree, cook them down, strip the meat and use then in a cream of wild rice soup. Leg meat tastes better than The breast meat with just a little more work.

    If you’re worried about breaking wings or body penetration, you’re doing it wrong.

    They have a pretty long neck. If you put more than two pellets in the boobs, you need 1’ more lead... aim small, kill big.
