I got here in '92. We were in the middle of a short season nation-wide. Minnesota's then normal 50 day season was down to 30 days. I believe we had 60 days here(in Idaho). It opened for 8 or 9 days then closed for about a month, re-opening in mid-November. I think goose stayed open. The reduction was for ducks. Minnesota now has a 60 day duck season. That's 10 more days than I ever saw in my years of hunting there.
