    I saw an article on how the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service would like to add another species (non waterfowl) of bird to the stamp to expand interest and increase sales. The artists say there's not enough room on their submissions let alone a stamp. The birders are thrilled with the idea. The hunters say leave the stamp alone. I sent my two cents worth to the USFWS in a email. I feel the birders should create a separate design competition/stamp.

    Seems I end up spending allot of time birdwatching when duck hunting in Ohio anyway. I don't have a problem with it if it helps bring in more funding and interest in supporting waterfowl and wetland habitat.

    That will suck, then the dam birders will want the money to help the eastern yellow beaked wren, which in no way helps America's waterfowl. We don't want waterfowl money going for none waterfowl birds. Tell them to get their own stamp.

    I Agree..The waterfowl stamp can remain a waterfowl bird.

    Sure would be nice if you ^^^ could share that link !

    If a tweeter bird becomes the neu bird on the stamp, is it fair :shootingguns:game?

    Anyways,the ages old, time honored, and proven solution comes to mind. If this is portrayed to the US F& W Service, it will absolutely work!

    Here comes....

    In the event of a tweeter bird becoming the new champeen migration stamp...

    JUST...
    DON'T...
