    Probably difficult for you to grasp that.
    Anti Hunter ??? you're absolutely 100 percent wrong!

    I hunt more in one season than you do in three or four !
    By the way , I really enjoyed my lunch today which was part of the bet you helped me win, the other I collect on next week .

    I have seen guys shoot a swan. Their excuse before they got their ticket was they thought it was a snow goose.....just sayin’.

    As a joke,a friend at a wild game dinner cooked both Swan and Cormorant and challenged us to tell the difference. Each one was the grossest crap I've ever ate (actually,the Cormorant tasted better).

    Exactly, how many times have we seen posts here by waterfowlers telling us that they had seen many " Snow Geese " but they actually turned out to be " Swans "

    To many on here you are an anti hunter I have almost never seen a nice post from you.

    That is because I am not interested in posting about " chainsaws or trucks "

    Thanks for the original post.

    It is very inaccurate/unfair to accuse Jaycee of being an anti hunter......so far from the truth. That label won't fly!

    Your assessment is spot on. People charged were hunting. I know most of us bristle when the terms hunter/poacher are interchanged for purposes of reporting in the media but in this case prove to be accurate.

    Fantastic to see they got such a hefty fine. As an avid hunter this makes me sick to here about this. Another bunch of bloody idiots shot two birds on Scugog this year that had been breeding their for the past six seasons. Wounded both adults. One managed to fly off (probably now dead) and the second one was crippled and could not fly. I heard they managed to later capture it before the lake iced up and it was taken in for rehab. Not sure what happened to the cygnets. We've got incidents like this already and we have people on this board who want to see a Tundra season. I can only imagine how many trumpeters will be getting shot if this happens. At 19K per bird, I guess you'd only make the mistake once !
