Control of an overpopulated species is just good management. Owls, hawks and other raptors were very popular to hunt before the MBTA. They were considered varmints.

Kinda stupid. But, why doesn’t the government put a bounty on invasive fire ants. They didn’t exist when I was a kid; nothing but red ants. Now, I haven’t seen a red ant bed in years.


Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.

My red ants have figured out a way to defeat the fire ants. As for the bounty aspect, they are wanting to remove 500,000 owls. I'm pretty sure a couple of mounds have that many ants.

Saw a vidio of a mwn catching Great Horned Owls. He used a live mouse on a string and a dip net. Just keiled down in a dirt road and let the mouse run around on the string and just scooped him up when he flew down to catch it. I have had barred owls nest in my yeare almost every year for last 10. They land in yeard and just sit their you can drive within 30 feet of them and they won't git up. Not the smartest bired around for sure.

This thread has nothing to do with upland hunting. No need for dogs to locate birds that live on the ground.

Sorry. Wasn't sure which forum would be best. But also thought it might be of interest here considering the impact of predatory birds on upland birds. confused2

I thought it was an interesting topic. I agree with you about it being an avian predator of upland birds. If you ever upland hunting in the region it's legal to bust one you can!

What does a dog have to do with it? I upland bird hunt without a dog and would classify owls as an upland bird. They certainly aren’t migratory.

I would think owls are considered predators. I actually like the idea of being able to hunt them.

You best not shoot the wrong one, like a spotted owl. Only those stupid windmills are allowed to take them out.

There is absolutely no way I would ever harm an owl. They are way too cool and even rare to see in the wild. Can't believe anyone would kill them.

If they need to cull out 500,000 of them, I would say those aren't that rare.
