Be careful out there...

The world was stunned this past week as evidence surfaced of an alien-possessed mallard duck that was x-rayed (where else?) in California. The complete and breaking news story is here. What with avian flu, misidentified grebes, and now this, aliens in duck gizzards, waterfowling has never been so hazardous. So as you begin your planning for the upcoming 2006 duck hunting campaign, bear in mind that the next duck you kill may just have an army of alien Anatidae behind it.



Been nice knowing you all.

Just remember folks, if avian flu strikes you’ll have to skip the fall duck, goose, seagull and seal seasons as these boys are most likely to carry the virus. Not sure about grebes and coots……

Did I not hear that you cannot contact AVian Bird Flue directly from the feathered creatures but rather from an infected individual? My understanding is that the original human donor gets it from the feeces of the bird, am I wrong oh great wise and knowing ones? Don't know about you guys but I don't plan on cooking up any kind of bird doo doo anytime soon no matter what the grebeous occasion is.

Not sure how it all works, but I heard somewhere that Russia as considering banning waterfowl hunting as part of a virus plan. I'd like some clairification too, as some members of a particular institution told me that I'd be smart to avoid dressing ducks with my bare hands if the virus makes its way solidly into my part of the flyway. The way I shoot it is likely a non-issue in the end anyway....
