out on lake in il wont mention which one but every time i hunt this lake on wknd i run across moronic hunters who have no clue shooting at birds 100 plus yards and calling nonstop for three hours seeing birds or not people if you need to practice calling i would love u to stay home and not ruin other hunters game its called common sence not to try and pull birds off of another hunters spread to ur own wait ur turn like everybody alse i have not nor will i ever start blowing my call when a hunter has birds cupping into his spread of course this happens to me every time i get out with wknd warriors. do us all a favor and just stay home if u must step on other people toes or decs ,i am convinced i am not the only one who has seen this problem maybe dnr needs to be more active although i dont think any laws have been broken i even heard about hunters pelting houses with their shot what were they thinking or maybe they just dont give a @#it

anyone else seeing this crap or is it just on lake where i go

i know exactly what you mean, im assuming this is a lake that i dont hunt but i have the same problem with ppl sky busting by me. I think they do it just to make sure that I dont get to shoot at the birds.

Makes me want to go there and just bend their barrells.

i see your point guys.. its probably the same hunters that hunt on saturday and fish on sunday right on top of you, or cast right at your spot, or come over as soon as you get a nice one. its the same clique.

Seems these issues have been going on for decades! I know it's very frustrating but sky busting is part of the waterfowl world:-( So, until the weather turns cold, ponds and lakes freeze...this will continue to happen.

I don't even bother waterfowl hunting in IL anymore.
I do 2 weeks in ND every year & pretty much shoot limits everyday & don't see to many other hunters.
I don't miss the weak hunting & weak hunters...

NE Illinois is one of the midwest's best areas to hunt Canada geese and that's a fact, if your on private ground! It's nice to be 10 minutes away from a a spot rather than 10 hours each way ;-)

You're just kidding right.

Not really sure that wishing injury or death on someone is a real good play regardless of what type of sportsmen they are.....

GRN Head, no need to get offended. Unfortunatly I don't have a spot 10 minutes away. Used to drive about 1hr 20 min each way & went out 2 or 3 times a week. I rarely got limits other than opening weekend if the weather was right. Now I drive a straight 10hrs each way & shoot the crap out of em every year. Toss on the awesome upland bird hunting, ND works for me. Each to their own..... Oh, and I don't have to deal with "Bad Hunters"

I wish I could go to the Dakotas, unfortunately I'm too paranoid about leaving my business.lol If you have ever have the itch and would like to go, shoot me a pm.

Marc....question for you....how do I get my avatar set up. I've done it a couple of times and never hear back from the site. Can you help?

"Sky busting" has consequences. It often leads to cripples that are never retrieved. Very honestly, I wish they would limit the loads. I was goose hunting a few years ago with a local guide. One gentleman in the blind was shooting 3 1/2 12ga semi-auto. He never shouldered that gun with out touching off 3 rounds. He also never killed a bird. We all saw him wound some birds that flew off.

Cripples are a very big issue folks. It has resulted in banning most waterfowl hunting in Australia. The waterfowl hunting that remains is not even on a yearly basis in some areas. Read this:
http://www.rspca.org.au/how-you-can-hel ... nting.html

I personally only shoot 1 oz, 2 1/2" 12 ga or 1 1/4 oz, 2 7/8" 10 ga. This of course is because I mostly use older sxs guns. I have never had a problem hitting a bird that was in range. http://rstshells.com/rst_classic_shotsh ... shells.htm

Nope, not 3 1/2" (88mm) they would damage my guns. I shoot 2 1/2" (65mm) shells in my older guns. I do have some modern (30+ years old) guns that I use 2 3/4" (70mm) shells in.

Most of my guns are 100+ years old. They were built to handle service loads of 9,000 psi. I try and keep it below about 8,000 psi. SAAMI standards today are 11,500 psi for a 12ga, while a 3 1/2" is 14,000 psi. My guns could handle them but it would be punishing on old wood. In addition, most older guns were never chambered for 2 3/4 (70mm) shells to begin with. I have no desire to open the chambers. Why mess with a perfectly good set of damascus or early fluid steel barrels?
