If that makes you mad I can add something I read on Delta waterfowl to top it off. Atlantic Flyway is very concerned with the population of black ducks as we all know..... but in Canada they have "raised the black duck limit to try and recruit more hunters". As well as many other changed that were implemented in Canada to try and recruit more hunters. That ticks me off a little, now we got to suffer down here when they get to shoot more on their way down. Dumb.

Here's what gets me, Years ago I ask our local Game Warden why they have reduced our Canada limit to three in our regular goose season. He told me it was because Canada wanted 50 thousand breeding pairs in the Providence of Ontario. I was watching a show a couple of years back from Canada and they were promoting a new program that was to draw more people into the sport, reason being. Up in Ontario they are overrun with Canada geese now and they wanted to reduce their numbers. Don't these Countries talk anymore. Hey DEC if your reading this, call Canada, you might be surprised at whats going on and how well the geese are doing up there.

I forwarded a few of the posts to a buddy of mine who is the (retired) DEC Director of Freshwater management for Long Island. DEC Biologist actually... master carver, hunter and great guy.
We spoke about this years ago and he told me that the USA has certain International agreements with global agreements to harvest animals in proportion the global population of those animals, not just the local density...
In short, if we are inundated with geese, but the global numbers are down, we have to adjust our numbers (unless it's an invasive species)....
I will post his response you your comments when he gets back to me.

here's another curveball...

fed's offered NY 3 BILLS...NY went with 2 instead....makes you go :huh:

as for the brant it has nothing to do with canada...from what i was told there was a big drop in the number of juvenile brant last season...when that happens it results in a shorter season....when the opposite happens and there is a large number of juveniles around...we get a 70 day 3 bird season....like we had a few seasons ago...those who count on brant for the guns to go boom will either have to wait till christmas to hunt or figure out how to shoot puddlers and geese...

Ever since having the kids and not being able to get out at dawn as much, I have revisited enjoying afternoon buff shoots.
Trying to perfectly decoy them a pick out drakes is great fun (and practice!)

Slack, Well I was going to "Highlight" the statement about invasive species, but it won't work! Anyway, ask your buddy why the heck Cormorants don't fall under that. I see NO reason for them to be protected!!!!!! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: Talk about BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
