Their season also ended January 6th. And it says there in that piece of that article that there was "quite a number of birds in early November"

I agree with you and it should still apply today IMO Arkansas is pretty point on with there migration dates... Louisiana not so much by a long shot! I have lived and hunted duck/geese for years in Arkansas ...but never agreed with Louisiana on there research on the their hunting dates .... it just doesn't make logical sense to me. Im not knocking DU or Delta but they conserve all the land they want but if your in a war zone on a public establishment, which will probably always be now. Duck leases keep skyrocketing ,and no more public hunting land is being attained. Supposedly there are more ducks now than there has ever been, but hunting is also as worse as its ever been. Im all for conservation but I/we can hardly hunt because a lease is above my/our means and lots of others also. Public land is a joke everywhere ,and I know because I have hunted Arkansas to Louisiana Im not here to ***** just stating facts of a working man... also Im no G&F Expert! and support DU AND DELTA note... im all for conservation of natural habitat for the animals but altering natural habitat and breeding im not

Ducks Unlimited is going to fight for hunters, because without hunters, the organization is not going to exist. And with all the anti-hunting liberals running rampant these days, we need all the voices and power we can get.

The day they succeed in banning hunting is the day conservation organizations and conservation die.
Wow u way off da mark. At least read DUs mission statement compared to Deltas

You don't think they would if push came to shove? Lets face it, hunting is being attacked, but the threat of those antis succeeding is not very high right now. DU's mission statement might not include hunting, but it is still an organization of hunters for the most part. If you think the fact that a "mission statement" is going to keep someone from doing what they believe is right, then I've got some good duck marsh in the Sahara to sell you.

Again, if there aren't hunters, there is no DU. Plain and simple.

Delta and DU are both important organizations that do a lot to benefit duck hunters all over North America.

You can't make everyone happy all the time.- that statements explains a lot of the griping and complaining in this ridiculous thread.

I know aerial surveys are a little off, but still waiting to hear how we kill more birds than we have in the state.

I believe the surveys only account for birds in the state at a given time. All the ducks don't migrate to the state at the same time, so its possible for our state to see 10 Million (made up number) ducks over the entire winter. But the aerial survey only shows what birds are here at that time.

I think this thread had simmered out. New topic

You do realize the winter surveys and the harvest estimates are independent of one another, right?

My only comment for this thread is that any data supposedly collected from HIP is a joke. I haven't been asked ANY questions for at least the last 3 seasons.

For everyone buying licenses at Academy and Walmart, the lady who was stuck at the register most likely has minimal training and even lest interest in what HIP is.

You know your suppose to be answering questions, so why not bring it up when buying a license?

I'm very aware. If there were 10 mil, we still don't kill 20%
