For those that can remember back when...

During the 1988-89 through 1992-1993 seasons, we had a 30-day, 3-duck limit and the season closed as early as January 4 (91-92) and no later than January 7 (88-89).

Prior to that the season went no further than Jan. 20.

I would be okay(not happy but I could live with it) with a reduction of limits to 3 per person if necessary with falling duck numbers, but I would be very unhappy if the season went back to 30 days and 3 ducks. That would suck. Would still hunt as much as possible. And it may not keep jrs and idiots from duck hunting, but it may keep alot of people from driving 3 hours plus to the coast for 3 ducks. Ofocurse i say that but from what I have seen, most of these guys dont kill that many on a good day so probably wont help at all.

Its always duck season, there is just a long break from february to september.

Less we forget that the seasons and bag limits are for the benefit of the ducks not the hunters. :wink:

Go back 58 days from the last Sunday in January.

Perfect season.
