but I wouldn't waterswat him...
Should I really be shooting turkeys flying since they are a bird and have wings?
should a squirrel be on the ground, in a tree, or jumping limb to limb when you shoot it?

I often wonder when I'm typing something in a joking manner if it will end up perceived that way or other wise.Swatting anything with wings on the ground/water with a shotgun outside of cripples is just not my idea of sport...I don't feel the need to kill anything that badly. I know there are plenty of folks out there that don't see things the same way, and to each their own. This is the way I was raised, and the way I raise my kids. Personally, I enjoy a challenge, and waterfowling provides many. Selecting the right gear, the right spot, finishing difficult birds?the list goes on, but wing shooting is a top the list. Making a good shot on a difficult presentation makes you proud?if it doesn?t you should see a Dr. but ya might already be dead. How could anyone feel any amount of pride in water swatting anything with a shotgun?ya can?t miss. Again, to each, their own, but to me, that?s just killing and nothing more. Nobody here is doing this for the sole purpose of providing food. That is non sense, it's all about the sport, and I just try to keep that aspect in the fore front. If we were in need of no more than food, we would spend our money on it directly rather than hunting licenses, permits, guns, ammo, boats, decoys, fuel, etc., etc. Besides all of that, let's face it, ducks don?t make the best table fare money can buy.This thread is now about as far off track as it can be?anyone else have any ?decoy photos? to share?

Inside the bird is a Skoal can of ashes of his late dog Lexa. and the dog in the photo is out of one of Lexas early pups.
The last fella that took the shot (in his mid 30's), did so while I was out in the boat pushing birds on a slow day.
I am surprised that no one else has pointed out that "pushing birds" with a boat is against federal law.
Doesn't that depend on the means of propulsion?
Based on my reading of the law, I think you can pole or row a boat in order to stir up the birds, but you definitely cannot be under power or sail.
I am new to the forum so I hate that one of my first posts is of this nature
