Below highway 8 would be in the southern zone. No additional zone would be created.
8 down to 10 is routinely froze out well before the southern zone closes. But hey whatever a deer hunter wants.
Whether it is September or December I shoot the roost and the decoys placed upon it.
I have never had trouble finding birds or places to hunt well after the season ends. Getting permission to hunt them because of all the Barnies have all but wrecked this area is another story.
Also quit acting like Toye,
But he doesn’t shoot other hunter’s birds? (Party hunts)
The very zone line you just proposed would effectively push out 98% of the birds well prior to the end of season. There is no question of that. Yes the Wisconsin and some of the other rivers will hold a limited amount of birds, but once the majority of water is solid your days are over. I'm not the one pushing for massive amounts of closures even tho I haven't hunted fowl in a couple of years, so the Toye comment is only partially true.
We could outlaw guiding on public lands...then I wouldnt even care what the season dates are as all the problems would solved!!!!!
Seriously though I am not a huge fan of the north opening on the 29th when we could have it on the 22nd, but I like the uniform opener ... We have been heading in a good direction with changes to shoreline hunting and the concealment rule....I don't know why exactly but the teal season has not really floated my boat ....
If you call hundreds of birds limited. I’ll take a later season for a chance at them.
I said before. I would gladly take the chance of being froze out knowing I seen the major push. Than to be sitting in the decoys goose hunting while flock after flock of mallards circles the set and only be able to watch because the season was closed.
The major push is always here gone by 2nd week of November. This is backed up by mountains of data. Science of duck migration is scary thing. It is crazy how birds migrate and far they can go in one plunge. It just looks like the major push comes late because the only open water is below the dam in town. Some Mallards will.work that freeze line back and forth all winter ... Mallards are only one species of many that we have the privilege to hunt...
So why not make a Northern, Central, and Southern zone with each opener a week apart starting with Sept 22, then Sept 29, and finally Oct 6 would put closing dates hypothetically Nov 25, Dec2, and Dec 9 respectively for roughly a 60 day season? How is this not a win/win/win? Don't ask me where the splits would be cause I haven't thought that far ahead. Hypothetically of course, I don't believe they will change anything.
