What’s the rumor mill from the “people in the know”? We know they started to release the proposed migratory game bird seasons in March so that will not allow for them to gather nesting data from the spring hatch to take into consideration. We also know last springs numbers were up. Is it going to take three years to get back to a 50 day season or since they put us in this structure preemptively and since last years hatch was good will this restrictive season only last this year? I plan to attend the annual meeting just to hear the thoughts. Also would like to hear the speculation on the mallards and sea ducks. I expect further cuts. I have to say for as warm as it is, there seems to be an average to above average amount of geese around. I can also concur with the less hunting pressure this year, these warm weather geese have been very workable. Probably means a lot of young birds.
