Jealousy and not understanding the amount of habitat and birds here.
It's funny how other flyways have the snow goose conservation season that goes into spring but they're jealous of our regular duck season. Overall they get almost the same total amount of days to hunt when the conservation season is included.
We are very thankful for the hunting we have here!
Speaking of jealousy...
We are probably looking at a 45 day season next year for Mississippi Flyway, and central flyways. Take a look at the drought maps, and long term averages.
Nope, I've hunted corn complexes in the past. Gave it up because it didn't feel like hunting, just killing. 50% of our hunts there were nothing more than a slaughter.
All I am saying is that the law is hypocritical and I don't agree with hunting standing bait because of my experiences.
PS: I didn't give it up because of money, I hunted them for work done farming the bait and guide services for the members.
You guys are so spoiled. I hunt every weekend for the entire season plus holidays, from early teal to divers at the end of January. In the last two seasons combined, I've killed 4 ducks (and two of those were mergansers). And it is a 4-5 hour drive every weekend - each way - to the NC coast for the better hunting. Plus NC prohibits Sunday waterfowling, so for working people hunting is limited to one day per week. Access to public lands is extremely restricted.
You other flyways whine about what species you prefer to kill, or you only shoot drakes, or it took you until noon to shoot your limit one day.
Count your blessings your are not hunting public land in NC.
And my point is, the law isn't hypocritical. It simply defines what and how "baiting" is legal. Just because person A has the means to do it within the parameters of the law, and person B doesn't, doesn't make the law hypocritical.
