    I was out of Whitehall and took note to a boat driving North from Muskegon around 1030 and running right through the roost of 10-20k birds at full throttle, instantly unloading a me Leigh of rounds, then going back into full throttle mode and repeating the process 3 more times. Things don't go unnoticed out in 90-100 fow in the fall.

    COs don’t care about doing the right thing, it still puts you over the limit. Many times we’ve had to motor past crips. Just gotta do it to save ya a hefty fine.

    I've motored past dead birds that were shot by others. It sucks but a lot less painful than the jolly green giant breaking it off in ya... Doesn't hurt to go by slowly and band check.. Ha

    You and your boys could claim you picked it up on your way in until you are all blue in the face, someone is going to be getting a ticket for being over the limit.

    Lesson learned thx!!!! Beautiful bird a lot of fun to hunt but I still love hunting for those less stupid birds not a lot of limits but I love the mixed bag of birds the other big lakes have to offer, did see a couple of scooters though all alone would have been nice maybe next time
