i hunt in the carlyle lake and every year i watch the early flocks of ducks fly through before i have a chance to shoot em. the south zone use to start much earlier and all i know is i use to shoot alot more ducks. last year they startd the season the same day as deer season. how stupid is that! read the DNR reports they will tell you that the best oportunitys to kill ducks are before the end of october. hell the average date of freeze up is around Dec 21 anyways. i don't like hunting on the ice. the only reason the season is so late is because of the all the big clubs down south wanting it so late. the season is perfect for them but it robs the hunters who are closr to the cntral zone.the clubs bring in more cash for the state. its all political.
