I agree with you 100%. The first step to solving a problem is admitting that there is a problem, however, when the USFWS continues to give liberal seasons, and then open up the season a week earlier, it isn't helping populations very much!

Habitat is poor, the duck population is poorer. This has been a terrible duck hunting year. I've shot over 40 honkers, but few ducks.

ALthough I love hunting, next season should be a 3 bird limit.

There are a few, to me a lot of birds isn't a few hundred, or even a few thousand, and if those are the numbers that we are going to be satisfied with then we as hunters and conservationists have an even bigger problem. That is the will to get our populations back up to the levels they were in the late 90's. 11.5 million mid-continent mallards in 98 to 8.5 in 2004, is a huge loss. Together we need to get the word out that we are not happy with the status of our wetlands and the conservation practices that are currently taking place. Write your congressman and express yourself. Layin back and saying nothin is heading us into a disasterous situation.
