I'm pretty f------ P.O.'d about the drop. 10 to 2 sea ducks? I hunted a lot in December and I only saw one other person hunt besides my friend and I. Lots of harlies, scoters, longtails. Never really see the mergs where I go. There is one guy in Seldovia that guides just for ducks with maybe some winter kings if people want to, the the ducks are his bread and butter. I know him and it is more just to do something he really enjoys, but commercial fishes during the summer. Not a lot of people duck hunt here that I know of, especially sea ducks. If someone does go, it is because they're bored and don't really care what kind of duck is flying. I on the other hand won't have to sit on the beach so long this winter. Heck, I'll just drop the anchor on the boat and shoot the first two that come by. I'll be done in 3 minutes. It'll take longer to drop the anchor than to get a limit of ducks. Well at least we can still shoot the golden eye and maybe get some mallards in the right areas.
No granted I didn't shoot anywhere 10 sea ducks this year, I'd just have my friends shoot their ducks and be the clean up crew or just shoot a normal limit of 7 ducks of various species well under the possible 18 bird day I could have had.
Last year there was a limit of up to 7 of the sea duck limit can be harleys or oldsquaw. That's it, but you could shoot 10 scoters or mergies. Haven't seen any eiders, but you could shoot 10 of those things too. If you know where I can do that, let me know, please. Anyway, these are still yet to be printed by DFG, I hope it doesn't go to ink.
