    The feds are contemplating changing the season (duck) framework for the 2020-2021 season and beyond. Basically, extending the close into February and possibly coinciding with the dark goose season close. Probably would entail a later opening day to offset the total days allotted by flyway. Wonder if we have any US Senators from The Natural State to thank given the potential loss of OOSer revenues under the current framework that’s not compatible with the changing migration patterns? FWIW.

    AR will secede before duck season is closed on Thanksgiving weekend.

    To avoid that distinct possibility they’d probably do a split after then.

    They would have to renegotiate a treaty with Canada and Mexico, would they not?

    IIRC, the overall season framework is September 1st through March 10th.
