    Did you shoot a lot of Bluewings at the end of the MN season?

    They all went north last year. They took the long route.

    End of the season? How about the beginning because they are usually gone from where I hunt before the regular opening.

    The early Teal Season is a much needed change. Not sure how a true duck hunter could be against it. Massive amounts of Blue wings leave this state or migrate through before the regular opener.

    Dennis Anderson's latest article couldn't be more wrong.

    I Will hunt the teal season, YWD with my son and daughter, and the regular opener and couldn't be more excited - Especially since our trip to Argentina got cancelled this month due to COVID.

    Like the changes. My dad is excited he has been waiting over 70 years for early teal season so gives me another few days to hunt with him.

    Yeah, my Dad participated in the last MN Teal hunt which I think was 1963??? He will be out there this year.

    While I consider myself a true duck hunter I guess that’s subjective. I don’t like the idea of a teal opener because of a number of reasons. I read once that in wisoconsin they estimated 40-50% of birds shot at we’re not teal. I get places like Kansas that get loads of teal and then wait a significant time for birds from the ppr to show up but Minnesota is different being a lot of ducks we shoot are taken early in the season and most likely local ducks. We are going to rely on the same place we’re shooting teal to hopefully hold mallards and woodducks soon after our teal season?
    I can’t believe how MN has taken over the gloves off all in the name of hunter recruitment and opportunity. Maybe i am getting older and probably spend more time hunting the central flyway than MN but is there any interest as whole in producing more quality over quantity hunting? I know it’s a dry as it’s been in a while but my guess is there will be a lot of hunters who don’t fire a shell on opening day this year.
