Oh no! I've been froze out the last three years at Indian Lake. I-70 used to be the split.Remember? I'd settle for a line south of the lake and north of delaware.For now we can agree to disagree.
I would also agree to that. An arbitrary line that's convenient for the state leaves a lot out of consideration. Selfishly, it pushes Capital City hunter traffic all one way or the other unless driving much further. And in Ohio - not much is worth a two hour drive each way.
I have no idea how it works other than 60 days a year. Might be better to go statewide Nov 15 - Jan 15 or Nov 1 - Jan 3 and have a Lake Erie zone. Include some dispensation for geese.
We didn't get a push of birds until much later in the season so I'm not sure how a NZ would have helped you last year except we all had ice.
Trust me...I AM looking for the benefits of a 70 split line...just haven't thought of one yet. Why do other states get more days? More ducks?
