    So if it is unethical to shoot a duck/goose on the water with an bow or gun, why is it ethical to then shoot a turkey when it is standing on the ground with a bow or gun.

    Shouldnt you call the turkey into range then flush him and shoot him out of the air?

    How is there any difference, please enlighten me.

      Some arrows float. Shoot light field tips; not broad heads so they don't sink. Like haresear, I shoot fish with them so I can get to longer shots than with the heavy fiberglass harpoon arrows. If I miss, the arrow floats up. If you hit the duck, it floats too. Just make sure it is legal... there is no doubt about it being sporting... I haven't seen too many northern mallards that you could draw in... they are pretty cagey!

        I say if it is legal go for it and have fun but you should check all local and federal regulations before doing so.If legal I would look into getting a recurve or a longbow and using flu flu arrows with either Judo points,small game points, blunt tips,and the even make a bird hunting point that has wires around it it sort of trap the wings. With either one of these set ups and the flu-flu arrows you will be able to shoot ducks,geese and almost any upland bird out of the air and not on the water. In most case except for shooting cripples shot out of the air it is ILLEGAL! to shoot any waterfowl not in the air.

            How is shooting a duck on the water unethical? I mean when people shoot them out of the air with a shotgun it is very unethical. You are way more likely to cripple or wound a duck if you shoot it from the air than if you take a stationary head-shot on the ground or water with a 22. I say if it is legal than you should deffinately go for it.

              Be my guest if your state regs allow it.
