    Was told by a reliable source that the bluebill limit next year will be one a day for the first 30 days, then 2 for the remaining 20 days. Yikes..

    That will thin the herd now if they would reduce the sea duck limits

    It’s only going to get worse. Nothing like a pile of black heads in a picture posted to social media. For a young hunter this means you are the real deal, a true hardcore waterfowler. Since they cut goose, black heads are the next easiest target. Mallards are next. I see a reduction to 1 per day within the next three years. Just the way it goes I suppose. To many hunters and to much pressure.

    The Atlantic Flyway is turning into a desert when it comes to migration numbers.
