I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.

definitely interesting. Which is why I just went to film. They said it was chaos at first light and I wanted to capture it on film. Although, most of the those guys in the video have been doing it for over 10 years, still not something I plan to hunt but I will go and film it for sure hahaha.

Moderators, Please remove this video. This is the worst example of waterfowling I have ever seen published let alone posted to a forum about waterfowling. There are only maybe a handful of these birds that should have been shot at , the rest were completely out of range and not working the hunters at all. Worse yet, when birds were hit, no attempt was made to recover these birds. If you are not going to do everything in your power to recover an animal, do not shoot it.

This video is textbook skybusting, and gives all of the waterfowl hunters that work our backsides off setting decoys, making decoys, practicing calling just to watch the birds work a terrible name. How anyone could be happy to have this type of waterfowling filmed and put on the internet is beyond me.

This reminds me of the "Guns of Autumn" video that CBS did with Dan Rather narrating in the mid-1970's. The waterfowl sequence was shot in the same area I believe. The anti-hunting people had a field day with it even though CBS claimed it was just a show about hunting.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

if they've been hunting like that for 10 years, thats almost criminal.....to down a duck, and wait an hour to try to retrieve it should fall under the wanton waste regulation, and all those in that "hunting" (and I use the term loosely) should be cited.
