I usually call in 20 a year that get killed but I only shoot a fraction of them.
Well...unless that’s a proper fraction, you could be part of the problem ;)
If by a proper fraction you mean legal then yes sir it is a proper fraction

He must have a bunch of land to hunt or he's an expert piddler
I hunt about 2,000 private acres and an endless amount of government land

I don't know what ground Roy hunts, but I could totally believe that possible. This year I've called in 14, know a guy at 20-21, and another guy at 30ish. And those are birds down. If Roy is counting birds called in, not necessarily birds shot, in an area with a lot of birds where calling in multiple birds at once is common- I could really see calling in 56 in a spring fairly consistently. Or if he hunts with more than one or two other hunters in a day, travels to more states than most people get to, and has time to really hunt, not just putting in an hour or two before work- then yeah 56 is doable.

So much of this game is the ground that you hunt. I hunt some tracts where I pray to hear a gobble. That's a good day- at least then you know there really is one in the woods, not just sign left by ghosts. I also hunt other ground where I expect to have 3-6 just hammering each morning. And I've been invited to ground where you might hear 15 from one spot. And all that ground just a few miles apart. My expectations and standards of a "quality" hunt vary widely depending on where I hunt.

i have some buddies of mine that don't know when to stop killing over his limit.i don't like it but i wish he would outgrow it not turning him in for nothing just wish he would have a little restraint.he averages 10-15 as high as 21 in a state where u are allowed 3.any body else have buddies like that.
I knew a guy once that had a "buddy" like that,...one day the "buddy" just disappeared. Strange, they still haven't found his body. ....Just sayin'...
The guy told me one day after the "incident",..."ya know, you reach a point in life where life in prison isn't really all that much of a deterrent".
After that, until he died, I made absolutely certain to keep my nose clean around him. :D

So he killed a guy because he abused the game limits?

I guess we'll never know. ...Makes you wonder if it's worth an extra turkey or two to take the chance, doesn't it?... Some folks take this stuff way too seriously.
