I agree and disagree.
I went out yesterday after work for Pheasant. lots of vehicles which i thought was strange,came over a knob and saw groups of hunters just standing at the edge of fields along the lane used by the farm equipment.
have you guessed what was going on ?
the stocking truck was due to arrive !
backed away from these groups & watched.
the birds that flew far enough away from the truck were shot at while still in the air. a mad rush to one field that about 6 roosters flew into. someone shot a rooster out of a tree,that must be a real challenge
some guys were actually running to a spot where a bird landed.
these "hunters" really need to lighten up,give the birds some time to settle & then work their dogs. it`s not hard to jump a bird that just landed & is trying to orient itself.
for the positive side,the birds are very nice this year IMO as I have been enjoying a good time with my boys looking for birds,not as scarce as the last few years.
