Hmm, you sure about that when talking about snows?

I've seen them go to different fields based on whether they are roosting on the north or south part of a piece of water that is just a mile long. Doesn't take much to change their pattern, goofy birds

In general, in the fall or spring, busting roosts will mess up someone's hunt whether talking ducks, honks or snows. That is why I'm not a fan of it.

Now, roost busters are hunters just like myself so as long as they are doing it legally, with permission and not killing species that aren't in season, it's their choice.

The name calling got started with "ditch pig" by Bub, so... Maybe he's the toolbag???

If your sky busting in a ditch to cut the birds off from others decoys what better name is there? Didn't realize there was a name for guys who set up in fields and goose hunt.

I'll go. That way I know what to do with all the ducks and dark geese that get killed with the sky carp when you hunt this way.

I put money down no guide has ever had you help set their 1000 decoy spread because we all know you only go on hunts where other grown men have to wipe your ass!
