South Zone Duck Hunters Quest for More duck hunting Opps

Postby feathhd » Sat Apr 14, 2012 9:45 pm

South Zone duck hunters your quest for more prime time duck hunting later and early is far from over.

There is always one more way to get it done guys and I want you all to think about and take the momentum gained over option 5 and apply it to this as a means to GET IT DONE.
The Game starts Today Boys.

South Zone Teal Only Season.
15 days of Teal Only Sep. 4th to Sep 18th

Based on this years south zone dates this is what I came up with when or if you include a Teal Only Season Option. Remember the 15 day Teal Only season replaces the 5 day duck season and under the USFWS rules if we did have a Teal Only Season and we use that, we can never return to a 5 day early duck season, Ever. For all those who like shooting woodies. Those wood ducks will still be around come October.

September 4th to the 18th <------Early Opps during the major peak period of Teal Migration.
Regular Duck Season with the use of your split.
Oct 20 to Nov 4
Nov 10 to Dec 23

Total number of Duck hunting days with in the zone 75
vs
The present 60
You get 15 days early vs the 5
You get to use your split to carry your season a little later to obtain a few later days.
Mind you that you also open and close on a week end!

Thought I would put it up for you guys. The Game Starts Today!

So why cant we ever go back to the 5 day early season if we go to the teal only? Just against the rules?

It is how the rule is writen brother by the USFWS and the only way to get around that is if they just give us Teal Only options without us requesting any! I dont ever see that going to happen! This Fall discussion should be a good one.
