    Don't worry Rach, they saved the little guy.

    Kenneth, duck hunting is still quite popular. I shot quite a few before giving up killing as a sport.

    Make a note not to eat anything that guy has shot if he just stuck the whole thing in the fridge for 2 days. It wouldn't have still been alive if he had gutted it when he shot it.

    I was wondering about that. We always cleaned ours as soon as we got home. We skinned the rabbits on-site.

    The part I always hated was when you had to kill them [ducks] by hand by wringing their necks.

    I finally figured out why deer hunting is considered such a macho sport: It's not the tracking and shooting of the deer that is impressive, it is the fact that one carries it out sometimes through miles of rugged terrain. :biggrin:

    It seems gruesome, but it's an incredibly quick death (and painless, since they end up paralyzed below the neck instantaneously if you do it right).

    The guys around here who hunt say that's what they have kids for. :biggrin: They go out hunting and when they shoot something, call the wife and kids to come out to help drag it out of the woods. Yep, real macho. :rofl:

    But you don't have any doubt they're dead then. :yuck:

    Hunting is one thing, but it's quite another when an idiot doesn't do it right and leaves a live bird in a fridge for two days. Incompetent idiot, and very cruel as well.

    Heck, for a duck the fridge isn't cold, and he had all that he could eat. :uhh:

    That was the first thing that struck me: you always want to gut them ASAP. Imagine a pellet tore open the gut internally. The duck would have marinated for two days in it's own offal. That would be fairly vile.

    I can just imagine Tsu's reaction if I called and asked her to help drag a dead deer out of the woods. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: It's more likely that she'd shoot me and give the deer a proper burial.
