Alot of killable birds survive because people give up with the excuse of them being call shy, or henned up.
" . . . and how many good bucks die from henpecked wives and ducks fall from the sky to a job grown lost and a life that's unfullfilled? I'll tell ya, kid." said old Ambrose, "The woods is where it all comes out. I tell ya' there's stuff in a man's heart that can only be told to the animals he hunts. That's the truth of it."
from "Virtual Deer Camp
" an participatory online novel
It just reminded me of that quote. That's all. I guess what got my mind to thinking (bad habit) was that when you get to looking at the excuses for hunting the birds, you also gotta look at the reasons we have for going out to hunt 'em in the first place. Half-hearted reasons for hunting leave room for half-hearted reasons for going home early.
