In all respect to Mr. Kinny's article and Mr. Larry's on waterfowl and duck hunting. I 100% respect your experience and knowledge of the outdoors especial on waterfowl hunting in Louisiana. BUT I believe you are looking at the issues with blinders on and not seeing the whole pic and taking everything into account with your information. If you care to discuses/debate this shoot me an email. I will only like to discuss this with either of you and no one else because of my own personal reasons. If I don't hear from either one of you then no harm no foul. But BEFORE we get further into this dark hole and YEARS (10+) to get back to some kind of duck hunting norm and show our kids and grandkids what it was like in the late 80's and early 90's (will probable never see it but our 'TRUE' duck hunters will give it a go) maybe you should get some insight from someone who you never knew or heard of before. Have a great day and Happy Holiday to ALL...

I am not a oil connoisseur, engineer, nor a politician. I am a simple country boy, BUT I bet a dollar to a donut if this oil spill was in BP's back yard it would not be leaking anymore. It seems to me that weeks before the explosion there were more than one reasons to shutdown this Rig & evaluate the situations. Seems it was more about the money they were going to lose with this well taking so lone to finish drilling than SAFETY. With money being first SAFETY being second look what happened. I think SAFETY to them NOW is worth so far 11 lives & 1.5billion. The families of the 11 people that were killed need to be in everyones thoughts & prayers. Does BP really care bout a oil spill thousands of miles from home nor the 11 killed??? Doesn't seem like they do to me... Just my 2 cents!!!!!

A comment titled: Re: To Mr. Kinny and Mr. Larry in response to a report titled: To Mr. Kinny and Mr. Larry

Guys, all great comments. I love hearing the stories from guys older than me of the 'glory' days in the 70's and 80's. I was lucky enough to be a part of the late 80's and early 90's and see the year by year decline from 2000. You young guys, take a good close look at a 71 year old man STILL hunting in a pirogue, that's how I started out and still somewhat do to this day. Back when I started there were either pirogue or very small mudboats with less than 20hp if you could afford one (which most couldn't back then). Duck back then didn't hear motor running from Sep to Jan, from 0400 till dark, it was quite. As I agree with you guys on the weather somewhat, but I know hunters had weather back then too. I even just seen a record high in the mid 1980's of 82 degrees. I can, as I am sure we all can, give you a top 10 list of changes that were created, hunters created and mother nature created that has changed duck hunting as a whole. 85% of my top 10 we can't and will not ever be able to change, but the other 15% is possible. Mr. Larry, with all do respect, will NOT be able to change things, if he does it will benefit some and then hurt others. I don't remember who said 'big money' but that would be my #1 and one that will never change. Now that's big money from Canada to coastal Louisiana. Some of mother natures creation that no one will be able to change, just to name a few; apple snails, Sylvania, grass carp, hurricanes, rising sea level and land lost and what I have sees recently while hunting with my own eyes that move the ducks, is the increase numbers of bald eagles. It hurts to see my son hunt with me and while hunting, tell him the stories of the same spot we sitting now there would be thousands of duck in this pond. I am just a hunter as you guys, and seen first hand great hunts, maybe not the so called glory days, but see for years some great hunts. It's sad to 'KNOW' I nor my son will ever see that again on a consistence bases in Louisiana like it 'was'. I would love to site at a camp with you older guys (especially the 71 yrs old guy) and share my stories and hear your of the old days. As I am sure you can as well, but I could also show you the changes here where I hunt from then to now. Keep the stories coming. Happy New Years to all... By the way in case anyone was wondering. I have yet to receive an email, so that should tell you guys something on how important change is or will changes be made.... but I am optimistic, doubtful , but optimistic...

Don't think that you are a bad tour. fisherman, from what I know of you, you are a really GREAT bass fisherman. I think that you are right in that you fish different on tour. day. Most people do. It seems that you fish for fun by yourself. Then when it comes to tour. day you fish with someone. For whatever reason you are fishing different with another person in the boat. That is mental that only you can fix, but I know you & I think that you can fix that little issue.
