BigDave I'd heard they fight to the death from a lot of folks if so then targeting them in a no-kill season seems unsportsmanlike at the very least if not crying for better regulations.
If that's an association you make by my confirming your statement that 'they fight to the death' and if indeed you are targeting them during no-kill season, which I had no idea one way or other - then I guess by saying the pursuit seems unsportsmanlike you could take it that way if you wanted. But that would be entirely up to you.
On the contrary, that's not what I hoped to convey. If that was my intent I think I would have said "Dave you are unsportsmanlike" and duck for cover
