2014-15 Southern Duck Season Dates

Postby KillerKowalski » Mon Jan 20, 2014 9:12 pm

I need help. Planning for next season for WI I need to know the season dates for Southern Zone duck. I do not know WI season dates well enough to predict like I can for IL. Can anyone help? Is there a method? My guess it starts the last Saturday of September. Much appreciated.

It usually starts the last week of sept or the first week of oct. But there is rumor of starting an early teal season going around so I am unaware if that will change things around.

^if we do get a teal season it is not "suppose" to affect the regular duck season length but may push the start dates back a week or two. That's what kent said at the last meeting I attended.

Only time will tell.

I read last year that it starts the Saturday closest to the 21th of Sept. every year. Thats how to figure it out for future years. With this logic, opening day in the Northren Zone will be the 20th and the 27th for the Southren Zone.

Marked it in my calendar. Already can't wait to return. I had a great time in Horicon this season. Met some great people and waterfowlers.

Southern Zone should open October 4th and close December 7th? It would be the same season dates as 2008. But we will see.

the worst part is we have to wait for august to find out, if i had to guess it will open sept 27. they are supposedly taking away the youth hunt for early teal, so it shouldnt affect opening dates. none of this is for sure though, just rumors

Well, those rumors are unfortunate. I rather have them push it forward if they are taking away a youth season.

The youth hunt will still be here, that's going nowhere. No way in hell are they canceling any youth seasons whether it's waterfowl, turkey's, or deer, to give more hunting opportunities to adults. Just ain't gonna happen...

Do you actually know this? It seems pretty likely that they would do exactly what you are saying they won't.

The dnr knows that getting kids involved is the future of the sport, and with all the additional youth hunts they've added over the years they're not just gonna scrap the programs to give more opportunity to adults. I worked for the dnr for a few years, and still have friends that work there. The youth hunt will stay, hence them only proposing the 7 day teal season. 7 days of teal for everyone, continue the early goose as it has been, youth hunt will be 09-20/21, northern opener 09-27, southern 10-04. That's the rumor I've heard, and it makes a lot of sense and would truly maximize the hunting opportunities for the majority.

Yea, I saw the recent posts. I will miss WI season this year because of it starting later than expected. Sucks, but I'll be in AR late this season.
