Just think , we could get Sundays to hunt at a cost of ending our season on Jan. 23nd .
Come to the meeting if you can, Email your wants if you can't come , tell all water fowler's you know to do the same but to do nothing isn't a option .
10.5 days to make a plan , T.T.T.

Move the late Nov split up to include thanksgiving and push the Dec start back a few days, and I'm all for it. That is similar to Delaware's season, which as I've said before, I think we should copy.

Moot point though, like you said, because the season will look like the second set of dates. Once you realize the state doesn't want us killing birds, the seasons they set make more sense. At least we'll likely lose the throwaway week in early December thanks to the addition of Sundays.

I would guess that the staff will want to go with ...
Oct. 10 - 13 (4 days)
Nov. 16 - 28 (13 days)
Dec. 14 - Jan. 25 (43 days)

The only change is adding in Sundays and they have a history of not making much change in setting seasons .
Last year we had ...
Oct.10 -14 / 4 days
Nov.16 - 30 / 13 days
Dec. 7 - Jan. 25 / 43 days

My big wonder is will they try to save a black duck season for us by cutting some days from 56 we have had for years ? I mean IMO a black duck season can't take 2 big shooting days a week so maybe if they cut that number to 28 days we could keep a black duck season for another few more years . Don't get me wrong for I'm not going to ask for it tonight but I will ask about the future of the black duck just like I do every year .

I'd like...

October 11+12
November 27-30
December 9-January 31

November is a throwaway for most of us north and west. Let's try for zones ASAP (either next summer, or the one after), and the area east of 95 and south of 360 can then break off into their own zone and push for more days around Halloween.

I want to say "Thanks" to those who attended.

Twenty five people showed up. Most of those people asked questions and provided their input of what they were in favor of. It was a good turn out, a civil meeting, a lot of input will be forwarded to the DGIF Board of Directors. Many people traveled a good ways to attend the meeting.

Again, Thanks to those folks who came to the meeting. It was good to see many contributing.

Had it in my head that the fed framework allowed us to go to last Saturday, not last Sunday. In that case, I'll be rooting for-

Oct 11+12
November 27-30
December 3- Jan 25

And if we had zones, the SE part of the state could push for something like-

October 18 - November 5
November 27-30
December 20- January 25
