Oil spill impacts on hunting season framework

Postby chasdjca » Thu Jul 01, 2010 1:30 pm

Still no definite word on how the oil spill might impact the hunting season frameworks... current information suggests that regulatory restrictions on waterfowl hunting are unnecessary, but FWS is "very concerned" about the short and long term impacts...

You'll also note they are considering stopping hunting on some refuges and other areas to create sanctuaries to hold birds (ostensibly a way from the oil).

The birds most likely to be impacted are the divers..cans, redheads, Ringnecks and Scaup. the flooded fields north of the coast will not change their migration...they are going to the coast with or without the flooded fields. Worse case scenario would be a hurricane that pushes the oil deep into the interior fresh marsh and destroys a lot of habitat. The oil will just sit there and kill everything (depending on how concentrated it is...)
