    I remember when dove hunters used to dress, act and speak like gentlemen.
    And firing guns right over populated areas with men working in tractors?
    Come now! You've been out in that SoCal desert sun too long, boys!

    PS- Is that a flammable fuel tank you're shooting in front of?

    I get your point, but growing up hunting sorghum fields often more or less ringed with hunters, I've hunted lots of times where I was in range of SPENT shot, putting the folks who shot those rounds in range of my SPENT shot. Spent shot doesn't really concern me that much. Everything I saw them shoot was at a very high angle, so no shooting directly at anyone. I didn't see any other folks around except the fellow on the tractor with a metal roof. That being said, the dancing and joking around makes me question just how safe it would be to hunt with them, and they are a bit too silly and flamboyant for my taste. I don't think I would enjoy their company.

    Spent the better part of my youth hunting the city elevator with bb guns, pellets guns and .22s...…..two things that were forbidden to shoot were robins and doves. Lived in a goose hunting mecca, right down the road the town of Watson had giant billboards declaring itself "The Goose Capital of the World". We made fun of the "city slickers", who came to town dressed up in there new costumes to hunt. When the State opened up dove hunting 2005(?), the DNR got a fraction of hunters it had projected...…..who in their right mind is going to hunt a yard bird.....right? But then some have no problem shooting a deer over bait... A duck on the water was always a no no, and a goose that managed to land in the decoys got a free pass...…..to SOME. Hugh is right, getting rained on with steel isn't going to do much damage, but it sure isn't fun. I can do without the dancing also, however I've sure seen a lot of celebration in the field. The newest controversy here is crossbows during archery season, everyone's in an uproar...…...before that in-line muzzleloaders.....is that even hunting? Kill a bird with lead or wound one with steel?... And the beat goes on.

    No, don't know any Luvy. What's a pheasant push? I thought you PULL the trigger on the shotgun to bang the birds dead.

    No, OP ain't trolling. I can swear over my mother's grave to that. He doesn't fish anymore for that matter. I don't know all the hunting terminology out there but I do know that in some parts of the world, namely the American South and Europe, DEER are DRIVEN by dogs, hounds, and people called BEATERS. Is this what mngundog meant by "drive"? There are no stupid questions EXCEPT only those that weren't asked but should have been.

    Yes, I do confess I am no Jack O'Connor or Capstick when it comes to hunting knowledge.
    Being naive doesn't make a person bad.

    I think it’ s things like not knowing a push is a drive etc. that makes me question if your really a hunter and a dog person. My apologies in advance if way off base.
