Teal/wood duck season opens here in Tennessee on September 10. Went by my local PO on September 2 to pick up a new duck stamp. Clerk said they didn't have any and to come back Tuesday, September 6. Went back on September 7 and he still didn't have any duck stamps. Have had this experience before at this branch PO and was not too surprised.
Went by another branch PO this morning (September 8) and was told by that clerk that they "didn't stock duck stamps". When I reminded the clerk the duck stamp was a Federal requirement and that the season opened Saturday, September 10, she said she didn't make the rules. I told her to tell her boss that they had a very upset customer and that with gas prices at a record high, it was getting expensive trying to find a duck stamp. :pissed:
Went by the local Walmart and bought a duck stamp . . . as I have before, but they don't always have them either.
OK, I'm through with my rant now . . . and am totally ready and pumped for our teal/wood duck season . . . sure hope we have a few ducks!
