Early Wisconsin Teal Season

Postby War Wagon » Fri Mar 07, 2014 9:02 pm

Wisconsin DNR is thinking about having a Early Teal season in 2014.
USFW Service will allow this to take place.
Looks like a 15 Day season to start on Sept 1-15.
This will not count against the regular season length.
USFW service will require the DNR to put "Observers" in the field to make sure only Teal are only Harvested.
Tell us your "Pro's" or "Con's" about this Early Teal Season.

I'd like it, but I can't imagine plenty of woodie's being shot as well. "Observers" or not.

I say let's tear them up. Who would vote against more hunting?

It'll be interesting to see what that does to the reular opener.

I don't want to hear any of you complaining that the birds are wised up. :fingerpt:

Our spot that is our best chance of killing teal happens to be a wood duck hole too. It's really not hard to identify them.

I knew this would be said.

Might be a nice way to spread out the pressure. I don't get my rear in gear to shoot geese and swat skeeters, but I'd put up with the bugs for a brace of teal.

If this pushes the open and close dates back I'm all for it.

Sounds like a great idea if it doesn't affect regular duck season, but I'll stick with chasing geese. I think they should make people take an identification quiz as well because I would hate to see a bunch of woodies and young mallards get shot up.

By that logic, there should be a quiz for all waterfowl.

There's enough hoops to jump through without that nonsense.

Well if it does go through I hope the dnr actually does their job more than once a month and get out on the marsh watch hunters and check hunters. I know I will have my dnr's number on speed dial calling in anyone I see killing or shooting at anything but teal and geese.

I think it would be a good thing to have. Gotta give a shot at least once and see how it goes to know for the future. And yes the DNR should be out checking during that season.

What I was told, it's a requirement directly from the USFW Service that the Wis. DNR has to be out there watching hunters.
There will be some that will shoot birds out of season. We all know this will happen, either by mistake, lack of knowledge,
or they don't care what there shooting.
Let's hope it's not as bad as everybody thinks.... :yes:

I spoke with the president of DU for Wisconsin last night and there's still a lot of talk about it. He was saying that some other states have a scratch bird rule, meaning you can shoot one other kind of duck other then the four teal there prob going to give us. Could be a option...

i hunt mostly in oneida and vilas co.and shoot teal for most of the "northern" puddle duck season(pretty much over 3rd week of oct) with early goose and youth hunts early i dont think another early season is needed. if there is an early season maybe changing shooting hours,30 min later am and 30 min earlier pm would with more light cut down on mistaken identity.

it kills me to disagree with an early teal hunt because we could easily limit out during early goose(the little buggers love to dive bomb floating goose decoys) but i do think its a bad idea

30 minutes earlier in the a.m. I agree 100% but 30 minutes earlier in the p.m. I disagree big time!

Sort of.

My understanding is that closing before dark makes it easier to recover crippled birds. If you sail a bird pre-dawn, you have increasing light and the whole day ahead of you to put on search. If you sail a duck at dusk, you are less likely to make a successful recovery in the dark and it keeps you in the marsh after shooting time.

I say let er' rip tator chip! Water hunted early goose and drooled as flocks of teal piled into the goose dekes. I'm all for being able to shoot them since once duck season opens the teal in my area for the most part are gone after the first week. Only problem I have there are the non die hards that can barely tell ducks apart. Might be trouble for the family groups of woodies.

I love to duck hunt. I am not really in favor of a early teal season, but if they have one I will hunt it.
