Duck Season Dates are set

Postby goosecaller » Thu Jun 29, 2006 5:26 am

Just looked at the DNR website and the season dates for 06-07 are set. Exact same as last year. No goose seasons posted yet. I wish they would have moved back the dates a little, but what can ya do.

you know, i didn't even notice that. Maybe they are wrong. I just saw they changed the year to 2006 so I thought that they set them.

The info on the DNR website is wrong.
Upcoming season dates will not be released until every organization gets together and agrees on it (CWAC) sometime in the fall.

Don't think they finalize the dates until at least mid August.

I recived this email a few days ago.

HI all,

Yesterday July 29, the Citizens Waterfowl Advisory Committee met at the RAM Center in Higgins Lake
and made these recommendations for the 06-07 waterfowl seasons:

Goose: The frame work for the Mississippi Valley flock(The UP and all but SE lower Michigan) 50 days. Southern James Bay Flock 30 days.

UP: Begins September 18 until Nov. 6
MVP: Begins September 30 until October 29, then Nov.23 until Dec. 12
SJBJ: Begins October 7 until October 16, then Nov. 23 until Dec.12.

Bag limit 2 geese daily

Early Goose: Up Sept.1-10. LP Sept. 1-15, except Huron, Tuscola, and Sanilac Co's. Sept.1-10
Bag limit 3 geese

Late goose seasonec. 31-Jan. 7 then Jan 17 to Feb.7, if approved by the Feds. Otherwise Dec. 31 to Jan. 29.
Bag limit 3 geese.

Ducks:
Upper Pen. Sept. 30 to Nov. 28
Northern LP. Sept. 30 to Nov. 26 then Dec. 2and 3
Southern Lower. Oct. 7 to Dec. 3 then Dec. 31 and Jan. 1

Bag limits: Six ducks but only two Scaup and woodducks.
Only one Pintail, Canvasback, and Black duck.
Four Mallards, but only one hen.
Also two Hooded Mergansers.

There are no seasons within seasons on ducks this year. The duck and goose seasons overlap a lot giving added opportunities to hunt both at the same time. The splits occur at the end of the seasons in the middle and lower zones. Also, be aware that the final two days in the southern zone are Sunday and Monday to coincide with the late goose opener, and take advantage of the holiday.


It dosen't sound like it's totally set in stone, but should be pretty close to this. Thought you guys would like to see this.
