i totally agree. if the hunting season was supposed to target the migration, why is our season done with before it gets good?

I have no idea if this anywhere close to right and I love shooting ducks as much as the rest you do but im wondering, By now arnt most ducks paired already? and if we shot ducks as they are paired would the ducks pop. go down or not?
Like I said I have no scientific data to go with this just thinking about it

Sorry, but I was bored and wandered into your forum. They dont want us pressuring them so that they are in peak condition when they arrive in the breeding grounds. If we were still chasing them, we would be putting undue stress on the birds and hurting the population.
