Too many by a lot and that's no joke. The problem with discussing an issue like this on a forum is that only us more serious waterfowl hunters get on and comment. The huge majority of hunters are more guys who hunt waterfowl and not waterfowl hunters. Same issue with the upcoming survey. The guys who will take the time to fill it out or get online is not a large number. Sad really but that's the way it is. So the seasons are set by the vocal minority. Probably true of most things in life.
