A friend and I hunted Big White Oak lake this morning. We only got 1 hen mallard, that was the only shot we had. There were very few ducks flying, but some shooting. Anyways, we get back to the landing and talk to a couple guys who were out scouting. They showed us a hen mallard that someone must have pitched in the weeds and one of their dogs found. The eyes were all sunk in and we weren't sure on how long it had been there. Then my dog goes on a little run and comes back with a widgeon, same area as the hen mallard I guess. We were all very upset by this want and waste. I put my call in to the DNR, granted it'll be impossible to find out who did this. I hope this isn't common practice for this *****(s). I like eating a little duck, but find people to give most of what I shoot too. It's just a shame. This is a popular area for people walking their dog's. Just think what a non-hunting person would think when their dog brings them a duck some ***** shot and left. It just makes me sick!

Indeed it is a shame, and bad for the sport of hunting. Anti-Hunting organizations feed off unexcusable actions like you mentioned. What few bad apples there is out there do a lot to put down a truely great sport, and the sad part is that they don't even know what they are doing.

If that is the case, discarded game, what a shame is right. Are you sure they might not have been coincidentally shot and just died in the area?

Wow,
I can't tell you how many gimme shots I pass on Ducks when goose hunitng. I don't eat them... so I don't shoot them. To me it's common sense. Someone else can harvest ducks If they want to.
I like honkers! (... and h**ters) hee hee.

These guys will burn.

Well, my buddy's dog found a a green wing teal by the landing today. 3 ducks in 2 days in the same area? I'm 99.999% sure some jerk is out there shooting and dumping them. It's just too much of a coincidence. By the way, my buddy had an awesome shoot this morning. A pair of wood ducks and 4 drake mallards. He was done in an hour. Pretty good for the bluebird day we had and morning temps around 50.

Well it looks like these same want and wasters were hunting Big Winnie out of the Tamarack landing yesterday. My buddy and I were up there scouting and found a drake blue bill pitched off to the side of the parking area. It must have been shot that morning as the eyes weren't sunk in at all and still had their color. We only saw 4 geese and 1 drake mallard up there. Lots of wind though too, so maybe the diver's were up on the north shore getting out of the white caps.

      My second year owning a cabin on Pine Island and this lake is humbling. We did ok Memorial weekend catching many small ones. I did catch my best walleye on the lake with a 24” off the dock. Didn’t do well this last weekend as it sounds I shouldn’t have forgot the leeches in the fridge. I hope to have better luck this weekend. It is still tough to have to come home and go back to work.

      Got the boat upgraded with  different depth finders and trolling motor so I could chase walter and had to test it today. Hit a local lake with a friend and we got 7.  Pulled spinners and slow death with 1 oz bouncers. First time after eyes with this boat.

      How did the pizza taste? I'm thinking that might not be too bad!

      Bowkill78, Most everything is going some place on the Clearwater lake. Bass, pike and walleyes. It all depends on your choice of equipment and what you hope to try for.  Panfish and bass are on beds, trolling can also hookup with a pike or walleye.

      Give them all a shot you will be there for 5 days.  Get a lake map before you go and look it over. It makes it easier for the resort folks to point out spots instead of just saying over there. 😀
