Birds are pretty easy to find these days with all our snow. They are just hard to hunt. Fun to see them anyways.

Vince, are you sure? Here in the Flanders we are not allowed to hunt when snow covers the ground... and we already have such a short season and a lot of extra hurdles to hunt...
so we are waiting now till the snow disappears.
(or till roedeer opens (female and young ones open on 15th January) and we can hunt them with snow. Doesn't that sound stupid: snow makes it easy to follow prints and... huntings doves or phaisants is not allowed Smile )

So for us, snow is no longer nice. Better let it snow in the summer period when we are not hunting.

Yep...I hear you Aloys...but as you can imagine, snow is something few get to see in Australia, so to me it is a novelty. Last time I saw snow was about 1972...and I had to do a 600 mile round trip to see any. Although it was a good weekend trip.

Cheers, Vince

Aloysius, I've never heard of such a thing anywheres else, not being able to hunt when snows on the ground. Wonder how that all came about?

Aloys, the hunting regulations imposed on you just keep getting better and better (sarcasim). No hunting in snow, no .22LR - its worse than some of the fishing regulations we have to work around!

You would die of laughing when I tell you how much our foxes are protected. And all started many years ago with the red (socialist party) minister Marc Galle, who tried to be greener than green and took a little bird (houtsnip - bécasse - wood-cock?) out of our hunting game. That little bird is a symbol. Studies have proved that hunting is of no influence on its numbers but it stays a no-game-bird in Flanders only, the rest of Europe (even in our frenchspeaking Souterhn part!) is still allowed to shoot this little bird with the long beak and its swinging flight.
Result: before Galle this bird was only hunted for about 1 month every year, now that it's forbidden most of the flemish hunters will try to shoot it ALL year as a protest against this red/green stupidity. (but they risk severe penalties!)
And since then everytime they try to find something new just to tease the hunters, hoping they would all stop hunting. And for the greens here the foxes are the new symbol. These foxes help them in ther fight against hunters because it's competition.
So no hunting in snow, no hunting closer than 50 m of a fox-nest, no hunting with these little ground-dogs (teckels, terriers, Jack-Russels), fox-hunting only allowed for a few months/year...
results: all small game disappears incl. all the bird that make their nests on the ground. And things that are forbidden for already very long time just come back because they are anonymous and don't make noise: poison, snares, traps... so when you hunt here better keep you dog very close.

So to take a picture like that here, you have to go back in time or have a look at the hunting areas of the money-men-without-control when they just open the caves with coloured chickens...
