You're looking in the right place but you're several months early. Check back next summer.

Some people go a little to far trying to be cool, don't worry about him. Hopefully he disappears soon.

Keep an on the NRC (naturaly resource commission) meetings, and on this site. The structure should be very similar to this years, and proposals will come out early for us all to see. The waterfowl association of Iowa is a good place to look also. The first proposal should come out in the april meeting of the NRC.
