    Buck fever and duck fever?

    The truth is that lots of folks love the idea of hunting, but have no clue how to do it, and won't devote the time and energy to learning. Combine that with the likelihood that they never had gun safety presented to them in a way that they could not ignore, and you get knuckleheads running around the woods screwing up everybody else's hunt, and blowing pieces off the wrong things.

    One of the mai points they harp on in hunter education is that you never shoot at movement without verifying what it is that's causing it. I missed a deer a couple of seasons ago because I head rustling in the grass and thought it could be my buddy's dad coming to tell me he shot something. Moments earlier I heard a shot fairly close to my position. When I looked up, it wasn't my buddy's dad, it was the deer that he missed running right at me! Too late at that point, but at least I wasn't pointing my gun at my buddy's dad emerging from the grass. The fact that some people don't take the time to ID their target is the one real scare I have every time I go into the public woods.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    About the only time I get out on a public-access hunt is the annual opening-day dove shoot the Tennessee Wildlife Agency sponsors in my area. They buy up a big cornfield, or maybe a soybean/millet hayfield, and harvest most of it, leaving enough residue to attract the migrating doves. The area is very well patrolled, and the TWRA officers simply don't tolerate any stupidity. Otherwise, I'm on my own property, where access is tightly controlled to include people I know will be safe and abide by common-sense hunting ethics.

    Even people with hunting experience shoot people, it is a constant vigil for the shooter.

    I duck hunt public land,4 years ago we actually had guys shooting at each other across the pond. One side shot at some teal that were 300' high, the other side started heckling, and it escalated from there. Nobody got hurt, outside effective range, but I don't think they knew that. I hate sky-busting but to shoot at somebody over it? And I now carry a pistol inside my waders.

    He was damn lucky the guy was using a .270.

    This is one of the main reasons I don't hunt here in CA.

    Do what you feel is right, but, if a warden sees that pistol and it is not loaded with non toxic approved ammo, you will get cited and probably the guns in your possession taken. There is no approved non toxic pistol ammo for duck hunting.

    I know it is illegal, but I pack it pretty deep. I usually know the game wardens on sight, and i'm not a trouble maker so our conversations are usually limited to "Did you do any good today"?

    I knew this was coming. I'm just surprised it took this many replies.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.
