Hopefully it won't affect our duck season. Longest government shutdown I think we've had was 3 weeks. We are at Day 9 now. I'm optimistic that it will end before Nov. 9 comes around. However if it doesn't, I'll have to find the ducks on a WMA.
A duck hunter must follow hunters of the oldest kind in North America. He must live his life a nomad, following the flock wherever it might lead. Through flooded timber, fields or marsh, he does what he must to find success.

According to our hunter-opinion survey data, only 30% of Louisiana waterfowl hunters hunt at least 1 day on public land (WMAs, NWRs, and others), so at least 70% will be completely un-affected.

But there is no doubt that those of us who hunt NWRs or WPAs every year as an important part of our hunting opportunity will be (or already have been) severely affected ........ to the point of rage over how little cost-savings those closures accomplish!

I hope y'all are right about the timing, and that it doesn't extend to the Louisiana season.
