In my group youngest gets the ducks when we don’t have a dog with us. Thankfully I have gotten old and we usually always have a teen with us that loves running through a field. We usually manage this like sportsmen and try to make sure everyone in the group gets some shooting in if the ducks finish predominately on one side. We will switch sides etc..Also I have known some crackerjack retrievers but never a one that would take a duck back to who they thought shot it. LOL Wardens worrying about rules like that is what aggravates me the most. When we are down to that being our biggest wildlife problem we have I probably still wouldn’t understand but in my opinion we are a LONG way from that. Some rules just don’t make sense. This is one ranks up there.
