I assume you meant early season teal are going to a six bird limit. I'd prefer specks to stay the same. I've talked about that a number of times with those we hunt with. It's pretty common for us to limit out on specks. I don't know that killing 2 more per person would be that much more rewarding, on the other side of the fence I know that leaving without limits is disappointing.

yes i was refering to early teal. and i agree with you on specks. we too have really good numbers all season. Our crowd has evolved into enjoying the white fronts as much as the ducks.

agfc meeting is set for 8/14/13 in little rock from what i understand. the survey they have been conducting is open until that a.m (if i remember correctly). that being said i imagine that they will have them officially posted by the a.m of the 15th. :beer:

don't know everyone elses opinion but i'm hoping that they stay consistent with the past few years and open first split from 16-23. my vacation will explode like a bomb if not :lol3:

i'm thinkin that they will stay consistant, mostly due to the thanksgiving holiday. but the other option could potentially draw in more patrons for the stuttgart festival since it's that week as well. that could potentially make a huge difference in potential revenues (i would think). but that may be one of those political issues if ya know what i mean :wink:

keepin fingers crossed for the 16th though

What is the purpose in changing the Possession Limit?

It need's to be at least 6x the daily. But mostly it's for OOS hunters.

First it must be said that on migratory birds, It is in your possession until..well it has been fully consumed or given away, including carcass. Before if you and your buddy went hunting and got limit, You took all birds you legally can not hunt until those birds are consumed or given away. Now you and two others can limit out without one person being over the pos limit.


say you and four others limits and all decided to give you the birds.... Your over the pos limit. Let's say you make jerky or sausage with the birds..they are still in your pos and your still over the limit, until consumed. this was suppose to help put a end to market hunting...FED's don't care where they came from either.. Seem's like it's promoting wasting birds.


Not 100% but I think on other not federally controlled species possession is in the field, truck, boat etc until it is dressed and stored.
