    I'm pretty sure nobody's still hunting woodcock anyway. Maybe them snowshoe woodcock.

    These comments shocked me! I guess I am naive, I had no idea any hunter would do such a thing. Maybe the very odd jerk, but from what you guys are saying, this is not a rare, once in a blue moon occurrence, but somewhat common place. Very very sad.

    Being this thread is essentially dead will stray from the topic with a story of my own. Few years back on a whim down to Darlinton for a duck hunt. If you haven't hunted Darlington its a managed duck hunt at numbered blinds supervised by an attendant where you have to register with ID prior too the hunt and check out after the hunt including a creel count of what was taken. Not knowing which stake to hunt ask the attendant which one I should try. He pointed one out stating it was hot the previous day since the 2 guys limited out on mallards. Ended the morning hunt with 2 geese but could of shot a limit of magansers. As I was picking up the decoys glanced back under the blind and noticed something stashed under it. Turned out to be 2 magansers form the previous days hunt. Packed them into the boat and made for the check station. After confirming with the attendant that indeed the previous occupants checked out with a limit of mallards showed him the 2 magansers. The attendant was pissed. Now the point of this story is if 2 guys would dump a couple of birds to upgrade in an area that's highly checked and you even left your name and contact info just imagine whats done when no ones looking.
