Re: need to vent
I used to help with the stocking in NJ,and it works pretty well. What we did was distribute the birds with the main truck to the stocking locations. At these stocking locations volunteers with smaller trucks and jeeps would wait to after legal shooting hours and distribute the bird throughout the game lands. There was just enough light to see what you were doing, but not enough for legal hunting. We would then take the empty crates to a local spot and switch with the game truck on the next stocking day. Never had a problem with people wanting to shoot birds we just released, because it was past legal shooting hours.It actually works pretty well.
It's breeding,training...and something unknown.
