Default My ideal duck season dates, what's your?

Considering we keep a 60 day season give or take a few days, what would you want to see?

I will start.

For simplicity, the whole state is one zone.

1st Split opens 1st weekend of November and season ends last weekend of January.
3 splits with 10+ days in the splits, to spread out the season hopefully appeasing the majority of the state.

Youth hunts would take place during the splits.

Good point, I didn't think about the Specks, but I think that would be a hard sale to allow speck hunting during the splits. (Because I'm proposing youth season during the splits)

What's your thoughts?

Keep youth before and after the seasons. Specks can be hunted during the middle (2nd) split.

Open weekend before Thanksgiving and close the Sunday after Thanksgiving (9days). Second split closes Jan 31st then back the remaining days (51) into Dec. No zones.

This sounds good to me but would let the youth hunt either before or after regular season so the birds could rest during the splits.

This is my take on it no zones state wide, Keep youth hunts before and after the seasons and still be able to speck hunt during the two splits. These would be the dates that I would propose: First split from Nov 12 to Nov 27 (16 Days) then from Nov 28 to Dec 9 (12 day split no duck hunting). Second split woud start on Dec 11 to Jan 1 (22 days). Then from Jan 2 to Jan 7 (6 day split no duck hunting). The Third split would start on Jan 8 to Jan 29 (22 days). I think these dates most people in the state would go with the season would still open as it use to on the second weekend in November.

Dates don't matter much when you have a warm winter.

Me and my cousin have been saying this for a long time. I really like this idea

Well as hunters we need to try and get together and get this to come across for next year. I think we would all benefit.

The Feds set that the seasons have to finish for January 31 I don't see that third split making it. As far as the Feds go.

Pretty sure the commission has already decided the dates and zones for next season.

I don't think they set them yet but I could be wrong. I think they were just trying to change the zones. I couldn't find any info on the season for next year yet anyway.

I don't think they're "set" yet. But I think they have in their mind what the seasons will be.

You might be correct I think they will do the public comment thing again and that seemed to get the season moved up this year since so many people wanted it. Maybe we could have the same effect if the public comment opens again this year.
