I was fortunate enough to shoot my first drake wood ducks this weekend. As i was walking in a guy stopped and said to me. "Why are you slaughterting woods ducks? They are so rare and you are slagherting them." And I said I shot one. What do you guys think about that? If you were able to shoot one would you since they are so rare. Personally I thought he was crazy.

What do you think?

Sounds like an idiot to me. If you get a chance at a woodie by heck take it. Ducks are always ending up in places you don't expect them and I will guarentee you that more woodies fly through utah each year than ever get shot.

If they were "rare" the feds would step in and put a limit on them and protect them some way. Its like pintails here in utah. We could shoot a whole mess of them, but in other parts of the country they are rare. Be glad you got one. I have known guys who have hunted for their whole lives and never even been given a chance. They are a beauty.

Was this guy a hunter? If he was not then it is somewhat understandable other than using the word slaughter, but if he is a hunter he should surely know that a wood duck in Utah is a great trophy. Congrats on your bird.

I killed a "woodie" tonight and didn't have to leave the house. :lol: :lol: :lol: I didn't say that did I? No, realy, I killed one when I was 13 years old, and I am now 42. I still have it on the wall.

Nice.... :lol:

Thats awesome about you shooting a wood duck.... I think maybe he was suffering from "woodie envy" or something. Definitely don't feel bad about shooting the wood duck. The guys are all right... thats a real trophy around here. Good job!!

No... no you don't. 8) I too would like to see a picture of the bird though.... PM me if you'd like. I keep looking for one in this spot I hunt late season.... just because I've seen about everything else out there. One of these days one will come screaming out of a tree or something and all I'll get is a memory. :lol:
