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.

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
