Post North Zone -South Zone- Mo. River Zone duck hunters





North Zone - South Zone - Mo. River Zone waterfowlers let me read your opinions to the dates posted below. Please indicate in your opening NZ-SZ - MZ. Which zone you hunt?

NZ 09-29 to 10-07

SZ 10-06 to 10-14

Moriver Zone 10-13 to 10-21

1st segment of Iowa duck season in each zone / each zone would have picked up an additional weekend.


Split would be 12 days


NZ 10-20 to 12-09

SZ 10-27 to 12-16

Moriver Zone 11-03 to 12-23

2nd segment of Iowa duck season in each zone / each zone would have picked up an additional weekend at the end of the season structure.

The above change was the suggested Minor changes to the Upcoming Duck season. Would the above dates have improved the duck season structure a little more than what was proposed by the IDNR? Just looking to get a little more thought on the subject matter.

Thanks for your replies in advance.
Bill

I think it looks to be a improvement, just wished I lived in Western Iowa again as the Duck hunting is better there. I do think the extra weekend at the end of the Season is great.

I dont really hunt down at my place all that much honestly. I hunt a lot of public for ducks at the right time is all. Nah just want to see guys opinions on the adjustment that was suggested is all that failed to get done. I have a reason for this so everyone be as honest as shit about it.

I like those duck dates for this year in the NZ. Add one week for honkers in Jan as well. Then if we get April weather in November we’ll be in business.

I supported this plan at the meeting last week and I still support it as the best alternative until we can get an expanded River zone as Bill and many others have already suggested.

I agree with KLTaylor. I left there thinking this is what we were going to receive that day.

Hunt only the south anymore. I see nothing lost in the above proposal and several positives. With either you have 1 weekend that's closed in Oct. This way has it 1 week later meaning a extra weekend for early which should help in shooting more wood ducks. And to me the most important is ending on a weekend which for guys like me that very seldom can take off much time during season ,really in effect extends the season a week.
In the past I would always state in my emails to have 1st segment only go 2 days then tack the rest on the end to get a extra weekend.
This is probably a much better compromise.

I hunt both North and South zones. the dates are better than previous proposed dates. Still not late enough but small steps forward are better than nothing. Thanks to Bill and all others that attended all of the meetings and spoke up for later dates on both the duck and goose seasons.
