Let's shoot for 10th for the opener or the 17th. Couple more weeks for more rain chances.

I agree we need some water in order to waterfowl hunt. If it stays like this it will be Fall Turkey hunting for me .

Duck season opening days in Eastern Kansas!

They keep getting later and later each year??????

In 1982 the season opened Low plains Kansas on October 16th!

In 1992 the season opened Low plains Kansas on October 19th!

In 2002 the season opened Low plains Kansas on October 26th!

Last year was November 5th?

I would say that we have moved our season back plenty for the S/E zone...The first Saturday in November is my vote!

I for one enjoy the early season! Camping is possible and there always seems to be ducks around...Maybe not alot of Mallards but plenty to keep the common public hunter engaged!

Most, me included, would have no problem with the late start in the SE zone if it did not include Flint Hills NWR and MDC. The late start for these areas is a joke.

Late Start

The longer we can keep the guides out the better!

Guides

Heard two guides in my area belly aching about late season and freeze up being something they didn't like? Especially in the public marsh areas that were shallow. My point was more to keep them out in general.

Keep out

Not going to happen but yes keep them out of public areas. I don't like fighting them or like the idea of my take dollars making opportunities for them to make money.

How do you figure that? People are paid to operate and maintain these areas, this doesn't come from private funding.

Mallets will you ask them to open specks in Jan this season. Everyone is mad about the ducks, but speck hunters have feelings also. Maybe even make limit to 3

I feel your pain on not being able to hunt specks in January. That month long closure until the Feb split seems like its about 3 months long. I doubt we'll ever see a daily limit of 3. I would settle for a season length equal to that of Canadas with a daily limit of 1. At least I could kill a bird on those days when the specks are the only thing that will work the spread.

I am chewing on one thing at a time!

Sounds like the perfect solution for a long time problem....East of 75 south of 54....We have 3 more years before we can rezone...

Until then the first Saturday in November for the opener...We have already lost 30 days of the South/East zone since 1982!

I hope to make it to the meeting on the 23rd...Please no one shoot me if I show my face in Barton County

I sent numerous emails to our KDWPT Chairpersons and have not heard one thing back from them????????
