I'm sure you'd all like to join me in saluting a fellow aviator who was missing for two days after being shot down by flak, sustaining serious injuries, but who now is expected to recover.

That duck is an aviator, we're a bunch of mock-ducks!

I feel sorry for the hunter. He'll probably end up being a PETA target.

"This is an extremely tough duck with a lot of spirit to live," he said. "This shows how tough and adaptable wildlife are."

Adaptable wildlife???? To shotguns!!!? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

People who Eat Tasty Annimals

Since fuzzychickens said that he'll probably end up as a target for those people eating tasty animals and humans can be classified as animals, too, i'm now really worried.

Hope the duck survives.

Hunters make me puke, granted they all use a riflw or shotgun, where the calibre or bore is larger than their bloody IQ.

He ought to be the target for fellow hunters. What kind of moronic hunter shoots a bird and throws it whole in the fridge for two days? Aren't you suppose to clean and prep it, than store it?

People who hate hunters, but eat burgers make me want to puke. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

Strange business.

File alongside the stories of shot up 109s escorted across the channel by Spitfires...

*edit* BfHeFwMe, +1 from this veggie! Personally I think that if you don't have the stomach to kill it you probably shouldn't eat it.

Put me in a survival situation and I'd kill to eat, but since I don't need to at the moment I don't have the inclination to take that moral path.
