Drbell Enjoy this year with the black ducks , they told at the last DGIF meeting that black ducks are in bad times and that next year black ducks are going to have a 30/1 season :eek: .
Cut I got a copy at the show and that pic. is a good teaching tool to hunters , that drake out front makes the choice to shoot easy .

hey lewdog,
what do you mean by 30/1, i did not comprehend what you meant, the regs. have not come out yet, so i don't know what they will do, i know its closed in october and november and you can only shoot black ducks in december. LEt me know more info if you have it.

Look at this , I went to the public comment meeting that was before they can put this into print . While doing the meeting they got to talking about black ducks and they said that the federal recommemenddations was almost 30/1 this year but didn't but was sure that come next year it will be . As it is now we can have the number of days (56) as long as it is done within the 60 days . Next year dgif will have only 30 days to work with so we will loose 26 days .
