 n.— «When I hunt public land, I have seemed to run into a lot of “skybusters” who ruin the chance of decoying a duck for all the hunters in that area. How can I get them to quit? Is this a law violation?…For those who don’t know what “skybusting” is, it is a slang duck hunting term used to describe waterfowl hunters who shoot at ducks that are to far away or out of range. This is common around most wildlife management areas or public hunting areas and I have never found a way around it. “Skybusting” is not a law violation but would be better classified as an unethical shot.» —“Ask the Game Warden” by Matt Majors Chattanoogan (Tennessee) Dec. 26, 2006.
