I took my daughter to a public area in North Al. last saturday.......... I now know what needs to happen. We need to lobby our Congressmen in light of
the "greenhouse effect" to open the southern season two weeks later and allow it to go 2 weeks into Feb.
Right at shooting time we walked up on a open piece of water that held over 100 bird - mallards, gads, teal, woodies, and wigeon... they all flushed then started coming back in groups, my daughter shot a pair of gadwals (her first ducks) with #6 bismuth from a 20 ga 1100. I had hunted this place off and on all season and managed to scratch out some mallards and many woodies....they just weren't here until now.............Somebody figure out how we can make a statement and lets get the thing rolling...
Youth weekend is a great idea..
