Lots of things we cant get done together. I will say this. The antis come together a hell of a lot better than we do.

How many hunters are capable enough to at least attempt to be retrospective and try to understand why that is?

When they refer to the "Turnout" and being dumped I have to wonder if they are talking about the WDFW building that is right there..

A couple of years ago I found a spot in the woods with a deer capped and dumped and a bunch of ducks dumped.  I called WDFW and reported.  They took down the information and seemed interested.  Forward a few years and I found out that it was a common spot for a WDFW LEO to go dump seized animals and roadkill.

A few years back I was driving home from work go over a bridge that is located on a local creek. I saw approximately 10 dead ducks and geese laying in the creek, it was a mixture of Canada geese, mallards and likely widgeon. They were not breasted or gutted out. I reported it to wdfw and met an officer and showed her pictures of where the birds were. She could have cared less in my opinion because the birds remained in the creek for at least 2 more weeks likely critters fed on them. I know its hard to prove but wdfw should removed them. This is interesting article  because its been on local news channel like wdfw really cares now

My guess is shot and dumped. Years ago, on another forum, an avid waterfowl hunter reported finding a large box of unprocessed ducks dumped in the marsh near Potholes. Over my waterfowl hunting time in WA, I've run into a significant number of duck hunters who love to hunt ducks, but not eat them. Those that don't pop up with the "gave them to my hunting partner" excuse; became evasive about what happened to their harvest.

Sadly, all those ducks in the story are good eating ducks. Unfortunately, many over cook their ducks and turn them into "stinky liver" and thus, they are turned off to eating them. Also, sadly since moving to E.WA, I've encountered numerous hunters who never eat anything from deer to ducks to quail to pheasants that they shoot. "I ate so much of that growing up...that I can't stand it..."  My 80 some year old neighbor feels the (social?) need to harvest a buck nearly every year, but never eats it. In his case, he does give the deer to a friend to eat.

 Finally a voice of reason. I to know there are lots of people out there who enjoy the hunt and the killing when it comes to waterfowl and don't eat what they harvest. let them sit in there garage for a few days and then end up tossing them in the trash because they didn't get them cleaned in time. pisses me off to know end. Those birds were bagged and dumped, they didn't fall off a tailgate or blow out.

I also believe they were dumped and didn't simply fall off of a truck.  But what I find strange is where they dumped them.  Why dump them right by the WDFW office?  :dunno:
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

Perhaps they figured it was the safest place because no one shows up to work there anyway.  :dunno:

just saw this post in the Nisqually pigs thread. Pretty much sums it up.


   Todays duck hunters are slobs. I see it EVERYDAY! I own 50ac. next to public hunting. Skybusting, overlimit, trash floating in to my place, trespassing, shooting from road, etc. Todays "ducking hunting" is ALL about numbers and Facebook likes. Whackem, stackem, flies it dies, brown its down, doing it dirty. Thank you social media and lack of Dads. If you spawn'em teach'em
