JS. The short answer is yes. For your info my balls are just fine. Amazing how a common metaphor gets turned into a blow below the belt. Stay on target above the gutter. Read the research, a fine summary done by Widnr exsists. The USFW required a trial observation period over 3 years in Mi,Wi and IA combined of only 180 observations by "trained observers". A mere 20 per state per year, not many. Yes the observations were increased in some instances but, still an unusually small number. The USFW threshold was met of less than 14% non teal species shot at or harvested were observed. The number seemed to get better over the trial period. Hence we have our teal season. So non teal species do get shot whether one wants to admit it or not. Hopefully over time the the numbers will get better.
