That is kind of awesome. I would spend more time fishing just to feed some eagles!They learned that trick below the dam at Lake Norfolk also. I had a bald eagle swoop down and take one of the largest cutthroats i ever hooked AFTER i was almost done fighting him for several minutes.
I've heard that they are good to eat, but for some reason, even though I eat heart, liver, and sweetbreads, the idea of eating something that would eat me doesn't sound right. If I shoot one of those things here in Montana, the law says I have to eat it, so it kinda keeps me from wanting to.Bald eagles aren't evened threatened anymore. They claim it was due to DDT that they were endangered. I don't believe that. I believe it was the poison they were using to kill coyotes and wolves. Once the varmints were killed, they were eaten by eagles. We saved the eagles, but we sure don't control coyotes and wolves anymore. The deer hunting sure reflects that. We had a coyote hunting contest a couple of years ago here in NM, but the liberals have outlawed that. We don't control bears anymore either. We saw 10 on a week long hunt a few years ago. That's when I started hunting bear. The meat is surprisingly good.
