Does anyone NOT shoot hens? Do you think it has an impact on the bird population if guys shoot hens?

If it flies it dies! Shoot em in the lips!


I try not to shoot hens but do once in a while.


The season's too short, hunt with a Woodie!

Passed on two hens yesterday.
10 yards, hovering over the dekes.
I don't know if it makes a difference or not. Just the way I was introduced.

if you're within the law and legal, why not? I try not to shoot them, but sometimes they get in the way Wink

You know how I feel... Your first shot (at puddle ducks) is a freebie... Early morning, fog on the river, past shooting time but still hard to see. Ducks apear from no where... can't tell drakes from hens in the fog... I'm gonna knock one down then wait till I can see them if the first one is a hen... But like Darron said, if it is within the law... you are alright. I do not think it hurts the population... Now if guys shoot four hens and get away with it a lot, then yes that is gonna have a slight impact.

Life is not how many breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away...
