    Ok, it's that time of year again. The season setting task force is going to be meeting soon, and like always they'll be looking for input. Assuming that the Federal Regulations remain the same as always (season must end the by the last Sunday in January and will be 60days long, etc.) What would you like to see in the way of a season structure for the Long Island Zone.

    I realize that it's difficult to keep everyone happy and that a consensus must be reached. But, in the past there have been some complaints/issues that people weren't afforded the chance to voice their opinion. This is our season and we all have opinions, so let's hear them and see if we can get them to the task force.

    More days in the first split, longer split. That's it. And a teal season, I ask every year and nothing comes of it.

    Not sure that this is a possibility as goose season is given less days than duck (it varies by zone and sub species)

    MTK we were 60 day duck 60 day goose in 1c.

    Duck opened like 5 or 7 days ahead of goose. Then duck closed and goose open for 5 or 7 days. If that scenario were to play out again I ask, please open on same day. If season length is different then I get it , it cant be the same...

    Ah I see what you're saying, and my math sucks

    FYI- according to the framework duck can only go until the last Sunday in January, whereas goose may go into Feb.
