Default Duck season changes?

Anyone read the outdoor page in the American Press yesterday? Possibility of a 30 or 45 day duck season for the next four years. I don't care how many zones or splits we have but at least let us keep our 60 day season. Several states have longer seasons than us already. Anyone know any further info on this? I don't see any advantage to shortening the season.

The 60 day hunting day total is set by the duck pond count which comes out during the summer. Just like teal season, for it to be 16 days I think the BW teal count has to be over 2.5 or 3 million. I see us having another 60 day season and hopefully another 16 day teal season. I think you are getting the 30 / 45 day mixed up with the 2 or 3 splits. The # of splits has nothing to do with the 60 day hunting thing.

X2, this has only to do with the # of splits not the # of hunting days.

Not sure I want to go back to thirty days.....well I know I don't.
But I sure liked the hunter numbers back then.

Seemed as though when we went to 60 and 6 every V.P. Muckity Muck LLC bought a damn Benelli and thought he was a duck hunter.

Never seen so many shiney Columbia jackets in my life the next few years after that.

To reduce some of the weekend warriors (tv/magazine) hunters. And hopefully reduce these outrageous unheard of prices for leases.

i don't think the 30 or 45 day season will go through either but it was definitely considered in the article, along with the splits and zones

first off hunting is like any other sport, you got to pay to play unless you own your property.. but as for the 30 day season, that is ridiculous.. i agree with noodle.. why would we have to suffer and have a shortened season when its already getting harder and harder each year to kill a duck.. Louisiana has the most pressure on ducks and it is only getting worse. why do yall think there are more people trying to kill specks now.. cause that is the next best thing, but that has started to suffer the past few years as well.. the hatch numbers have been up the past few years but i just think there are too many variables, such as weather and short stopping, to just change the season to 30 days... not trying to start an argument but just trying to get other peoples thoughts...

bottom line......duckanomics means bang for the buck.

when guys do not get alot of it they will move on to something more bucky than ducky.
I started hunting during the 80's when it was 30/3

the pressure comes from the guys with the means to buy a regular Joe out, put surface drives in any hole imaginable and hunt thirty days at a time.

The sport has changed exponentially in the last thirty years with more of a "bass fisherman's" feel, like duck hunting will produce "duck masters" or something.

Not knocking it at all......did the bass thing myself for a while.

But with the internet and stickers all over trucks and this "rockstar" hunter bull ****, out sport is being over come by peeps that live in the shallow end of the pool.

Again, these are just my opinions and I want everyone to give them.

Arguments are not bad at all man, it's the "mine is bigger than yours" contest that waste time.

I'll hunt any day they give me.
But I still like the push pole and the pirogue .........

You kinda sung my tune cgoods17....."getting harder and harder each year to kill a duck......."

I am blessed to be able to lease some fine places.......if I wanted to.......and my favorite place is down river, with the push pole and pirogue.

i think 60 is plenty but maybe breaking it up into 3 splits is the better more logical option...
