    First I am not a waterfowl hunter. I do know that here in Ohio, the Canada Geese have got out of hand. They have become a major PEST. Chasing small children at locals parks.
    Now it looks like they brought down a Jet Airliner, with 155 people on board, (All Alive thanks to the pilot and other heros)

    Here in Ohio ,they still only have a Daily bay limit of 3. Looks like they could raise this number,by alot.

    They are protect my Migratory Birds Laws.

    I think its time our Federal Goverment, and The state, help bring their numbers down.Where they can be control.

    They are all OVER our area and befoul all kinds of waterways. They no longer migrate and are a terrible menace here.

    And yet the news said there are just 4m in the USA. DBF and I were stunned that there aren't more!

    Guess we are weird, we love them. They flock the lake to the point of almost total surface cover and honk day and night. Sounds like it irritates a few people, but we love the sound.

    Maybe I just like anything Canadian. [​IMG]
