Season dates...

Postby chrispbrown27 » Sat Oct 01, 2011 8:47 am

When exactly does the state release the official season dates? I keep checking the website, but can only find the news release about the proposed season dates and last years dates. Being my first year in KY I am not sure how they do it down here, Illinois always releases their official dates by September.

i'd say they'll have a meeting sometime this month and vote on the dates, then there will be another press release announcing dates.

Ya I saw that the proposed opener was Thanksgiving and usually the proposed ends up being the official date. Just seems strange that they don't release the official til September. The season has opened up in Illinois on Thanksgiving for quite a few years too.

The dates are set. They announced them before the blind drawing the other morning. As for when they will be put on the website idk but they are set. If you want to hear it strait from the mouth of a officer the KDFWR Main Office # is 18008581549.

Not around the pond. Really only 3 spots I was interested in and by the time my #41 draw came around them 3 spots where gone. We pinned a few other places though. Bout tired of taking care of a floater anyway for awhile!! Plenty of my buddies got around the pond though so its all good!!

I never have drawn at any of the public spots back up north or maintained one on a private spot but it always looked like it would be a pain. I hope ya knock their beaks off.
