BIG CHANGES TO DUCK SEASON THIS YEAR

Postby SpringHill Duckman » Tue Aug 01, 2006 4:28 pm

There are some rumors bouncing around that this year they are changing some duck regs.

"With approval of the Hunter's Choice regulations, hunters will have a five-duck limit instead of the traditional six that liberal regulations traditionally allow. Basically an aggregate limit, Hunter's Choice eliminates the "season within a season" for less abundant species such as pintails and canvasbacks. Hunters can have one mallard hen, one pintail or one canvasback in their five-bird bag."

Also hearing about a longer goose season. No complaints there.

Yeah, no complaints either about the possible longer goose season. Actually, no complaints on the five bird limit either. I think that is a good idea, maybe give the duck numbers a chance to catch back up to where they should be. I guess only time will tell.

Duck numbers are'nt going to go back up until SD stops turning all their grassland into farm land.

Yeah, unfortunately that is true. Sad to hear all the land being taken away.

each state in the central flyway was paired up with a neighbor and a coin was literally tossed to see which state stayed with the old regs and who has the new, it seems like a really sophisticated system,some would say KS lost the toss but i say we won, i wouldn't mind a fiver in all states without a coastline. they really need to let us shoot more canadians though

Amen on the more Canadas. If they even stop around here this year. I'm not seeing much corn. Although they like beans too and the beans still look good. OK, don't start a waterfowl 1964 hunt or anything but I think this year I might voluntarily try to ease up on the ducks a little. Save some for the future.
