Sunday hunting in CT has made it out of committee in favorable votes, even last session, twice now and not once has it made it to the floor for a general vote - both times it made it out of committee it was a bowhunting only /private land only bill. You can review the bill, the changes proposed and who proposed them, review the public responses as well as how everyone voted. http://www.cga.ct.gov/asp/cgabillstatus/cgabillstatus.asp?selBillType=Bill&bill_num=83&which_year=2012&SUBMIT1.x=0&SUBMIT1.y=0
The same no votes have been happening for years and are long term reps. Going to be a long fight until we replace a few of those long term dems.
All my early season waterfowl is done inland in northeast CT. Ducks are almost exclusively on public property while my goose hunting is mostly on private land. As mentioned all the experts are saying this is the year of the duck and from our early season scouting we have seen many more birds this year then the past 3. Video taped almost 200 birds piling into a roost two weeks ago the majority were mallards and woodies with a few blacks as well.
