"The difference between genius and stupidity is: genius has its limits". Help me understand, Louisiana will open Duck Season Two weeks earlier than Missouri (south zone opens Nov28) Arkansas Nov 23. Though we may disagree on why ,I think we can all agree that what few birds are coming to Louisiana are arriving late. Hopefully, we will agree that one factor in pushing birds south is hunter pressure. The migration has changed in NW La. for whatever reason. 20 yrs ago we begged for an early opening but things have changed. If our so called expert and Commison just don't get it, then just follow Ark lead. If opening early is so important then open for a weekend and reopen weekend Ark opens. It is just stupid for La to be open when Ark is closed. I do not profess to be an expert but I do have a little common sense. I have relayed this proposal the past three yrs but I guess no one is listening are cares. They may not come again this yr but I know they won't come until they feel a little pressure ,just too much food. A really smart guy once said "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results" I'm not always right but I think I am, otherwise I would not express it.
