"Why can't I just hunt without worrying about nature or the environment….its like they are gone now…"
Yea your traditional excuse is tired and lame. Stop needlessly hunting animals. And its not like it's an accomplishment. You are tricking animals with technology and then making dogs into a tool not a companion.
So it's a social thing….its a social thing to get together and shoot stuff with shotguns. Yea that sounds like a traditional activity that can just die off…sorry your weekends dont involve killing fowl anymore.

look just doesn't really require a membership in the Mensa Society to understand you know the Ducks are tired of getting shot at so they've gone someplace else and give this an idea shoot something else in anime like all the beer cans that you guys drink when you're out there duck hunting hey I used to live in Idaho and Alaska so don't get your hackles up anyway like I said shoot at something else. Peace!

Maybe like the eagle eggs, in correlation between environmental poisoning and the shells being weak. Or the dissapearance of honey bees…. Welcome to the poisoning of our earth for corporate greed.

Hunters should be the foremost of environmentalists. I gave up salmon fishing, just drowning lures. Sad….

Many hunters do not even eat the small animals. Also, many fisherman just give away their catch. Hunt for fun, not food….

The airwaves and routes that migratory birds have flown for millennia are now built up with cities and skyscrapers, and streets for miles lined with artificial lighting. Artificial light pollution seriously affects the nighttime flights of migratory birds, too.

For all of you commenters saying that hunters are decimating the duck populations, perhaps don't believe every MSM story you see. As a wildlife biologist, duck populations are 15-20 percent higher in recent years than the averages over the last 70 years. Although regional populations vary due to variable climate, wildlife numbers are healthy. Understand that biased reporting is real, and the truth is found through research. Ask yourself, does precipitation vary annually at your house, or does it rain and snow the same amount every year?

Still questioning if the Ducks are changing migration patterns for a reason? Nothing at all to do with climate? Still have our guns though! Ignant lol

Funny in the PNW we have more ducks than I can remember. Makes sense to me that they're switching migration routes.

These days, about the only way you can get safe food, untouched by some corporate 'food producer,' is to hunt. So, safe food for humans is about gone?
