    A friend of mine was driving to work early this week down a back road. When suddenly a duck came out of the ditch and he hit it. Should be the end of the story? It's not.
    The next day a sheriff deputy comes to his house and knocks on the door. He is there to find out why the guy hit the duck. Seems a lady was getting her newspaper and saw him hit the duck. She took his plate number and called the sheriff. He told the deputy what happened and the deputy laughed as he called it in on the radio. The deputy and the dispatcher had a good laugh about it on the radio not believing they were chasing down a dead duck. The deputy made his notes and then left telling my friend not to worry about it. End of story? No the first clue was when the deputy told him not to worry about it.
    Yesterday 2 officers from ODNR showed up at this guys house wanting to know why he killed 2 ducks. I guess they needed 1 officer per duck. My buddy tells them he hit 1 duck when it came out of the ditch, he never saw a 2nd duck. It seems the woman called ODNR after she called the sheriff and the number of ducks increased. They told him they would be doing a follow up and would be back to talk to him if he didn't call a number they gave him and leave his version of what happened on a voice mail. (A confession without having his rights read?)
    The deputy and ODNR agents asked him why he didn't stop and offer assistance to the duck and see if it was alright.
    Besides being a funny story, this is a pretty telling point. They can get calls from people who say they are seeing illegal fishing activity, but in the 2 days it takes them to get there the violation is done. The caller was a woman who had never called them before, so they assumed she wasn't crying wolf, it must have happened the way she said. And what did she say? That this guy swerved before hitting the ducks so he must have done it on purpose. The time can made for 2 ODNR agents to chase down a hit and run on a duck but according to quite a few people here they won't come to check out fishing violations. What is wrong with this picture.

    lmao me too :smile2:

    Reminded me of my brother being half knocked-out by a duck that flew through his open window while he was driving... he didn't even know what happened, got pulled over for driving erratic. The cop asked him what was up with the bloody duck in his Back seat. My little bro said "Huh?" lmao:smile2:

    The deal on this is that not only is it a state issue but also a federal issue....Due to the fact that they are so called protected by 2 agencies anytime there is a chance of foul play ( in this case there was not) they can give you 2 seperate fines....

    True story. I thought he was kidding the day he told me about the deputy stopping. When the ODNR stopped they left their card with a hand written number on it for voice mail, I called it and that's what it was, voice mail for the county agent. We figure he'll be known to law enforcement as the duck dude.

    Dont blame the Public Servants blame the rules they must follow, they are just doing their job thank them for that at least they are doing that. If there were a rule about something else and they turned their head then nail them.

    While I agree to a point why be against the DNR or the Sheriff, the are doing their jobs if they were doing that to protect a flathead you all would be ecstatic. This is what we get when wen wright a law for everything imaginable, and if they actually try to enforce they get hammered from one end for doing it and if they didnt they get hammered by the other end you cant have it both ways.

    Dont get me wrong I think its bull that this woman called in for a duck walking in front of this guys car/truck but in another circumstance what if she saw guys catching fish to sell and called it in?

    let me clarify, while i would still tell the officers to shove it repectfully..it's the lawmakers who are at fault.

    that would be cool if they supported flathead a little more but i don't care too much about that, i'm not a CPR nazi..i catch them..i know they're there..i know there's alot there..those laws seem to be working alright for me.
