...of the exact place (as in the very parking lot or other access) and day when the PGC stocks pheasants. Evidently there is some such thing because, since I got my Springer, grouse populations collapsed and I got into pheasant hunting, I've seen some things. It was perfectly illustrated Saturday when, the small satellite SGL 270 was heavily stocked and in the time my brother and I were there, a bit over an hour, we saw no fewer than FIVE different vehicles come and go. Now, at the main body of SGL 270 around Lake Wilhelm, there were maybe 3 vehicles total spotted parked as we drove to hunt. One was a truck with a dog box in it. That's it.
This smaller satellite game lands was stocked to the point that 3 cocks and 5 hens were bopping along the road in front of a farmers leaking corn crib. Poor dog was going nuts. Nothing where we were at Wilhelm.
So instead of the birds being spread around at many very easily accessible fields so many people had a chance at a few, they were dumped in a high concentration in one small area that couldn't be hunted by very many people without crowding and a place with no food plots to hold onto the birds that weren't immediately killed. They would reasonably all go over to the corn crib next door or whatever.
Just when I think I can support the Game Commission, they do this, which seems a lot like the financial swindle of 'insider trading'.
If they have a mailing list that I didn't sign up for, I'd like to get in on the action. Unfortunately, I don't have the $$$ to buy any of the officials or insiders enough hookers and blow to get them to consider me. That's how corruption works, right? Hookers and blow for the men in charge gets you in the door?
