Some Idiot is shooting Bald Eagles

I remember seeing a photo of a golden eagle carrying a dead fawn antelope once in a F&G display at the state fair,I dont know if the eagle killed it or not but it was definetly going somwhere with it.pretty impresive,a golden is a much larger bird though.

Huh, I've never seem that. But, I had a Red tail hawk try to grab a shorthair pup on me once. Unfortunally for the redtail I was right there when it did it. Now I'm not saying I killed it nor that I even concidered it mind you but that is one hawk that anyone will never have to worry about grabbing a puppy again! I also caught a huge owl in my pigeon pen eating pigeon's once; I find that about some thing's i'm not a very forgiving man.

But I enjoy looking at these bird's as much as anybody.

LOL Don thats a good story,I know exactly how you feel,I saw a video of two turkey hens tearin the crap out of a redtail after it took a swipe at thier chicks,one of the funniest videos ever,they flew after it,caught it in midair and knocked the crap out of it!Birds of pre are predators just like cats and i know some of them are rare and need protection but I gaurentee you they dont get any on some ranches in s.e. Montana and the Dakotas where they outfit for pheasent and huns.
