    Looks good to me, thank you for posting Larry!

    That October week seems to be getting earlier and earlier, and while I don't feel that is the best for migrating ducks, Oct 10th opener works out better for me personally as far as days I can hunt and where. So I will target woodrows and maybe yocal mallets and be happy!

    And I know it won't go over well with the goose hunters but I'd scratch those 3 days in February and open goose November 18th in a heart beat!!!! I'm a water hunter, so of course I want to overlap duck/goose whenever possible. :flame

    October is the same as it always is, second through third full weekends of the month. I'm happy there's some separation between early duck and MZ this year, can concentrate on one thing at a time.

    I'd take the week back in November for geese, I always did well that week, better than in February last winter. Of course I have a spot that has plenty of geese in November.

    Somehow right now I've forgotten the days with no birds last year and I'm really excited for duck season! :)

    l like the dates. Later for ducks and geese is almost always better for me. I really enjoyed the February goose season last year.

    Last year in Feb. for me was 3 days of 8 man limits, I'll take as many days in Feb as I can get and would rather see days come off of the Nov. season

    Thought I would add the federal frameworks for Ducks and AP Canada Geese.

    DUCKS
    Federal Framework: A 60 day season may be held between the Saturday nearest September 24 (September 26) and the last Sunday in January (January 31).

    ATLANTIC POPULATION CANADA GEESE

    Federal Framework: AP Zone: A 50-day season may be held between November 15 and February 5, with a 2-bird daily bag limit. These seasons also include white-fronted geese. Unless specified otherwise, seasons may be split into two segments.

    Yup those two extra days can come off the front of Nov and get added to Feb. Now that would be just perfect
