    Not offended. I recognize the significant differences across Iowa and I campaign for a larger Missouri River zone not for me but for all Iowa waterfowlers who might partake of late December mallards and Canada's over cornstalks. This part of Iowa is the destination of thousands of mallards and dark geese ... Through December and January ... That is why this area should be the third Iowa zone and give more opportunity. What happens over around Cedar Rapids is not for me to deal with ... You guys know better. But over here along the big muddy, things are very different and Dnr is not friendly to waterfowlers at all.

    Dnr would be very happy were there NO waterfowl seasons.

    BTW, I hale from Iowa county and have a son who is a partner in Arenson & Maas Law Firm in CR ... He is hardcore ....

    I know not where you live or hunt. However, you say that you were froze out before the end of season last year - when you were discussing the 2014 dates/zones. I have no reason to disbelieve you, but let me tell you that there is a part of Iowa that is hosting Mallards and Canadas ALL THROUGH DECEMBER & JANUARY ... and until they head back north. The Missouri River - from Hamburg, Iowa, to Sioux City, Iowa, hosts thousands of Mallards and Canadas all winter ... and they feed in the thousands of acres of river bottom cornfields -- including ours and those of our neighbors == Mallards that come out of the Dakotas in mid-December to ~10 January ... this part of Iowa is their southward migration destination ... they do not go further south! I know of several landowners who have cornfields that they would gladly let hunters use to chase Mallards ... establish a relationship and a group can have good field hunting all winter! The beauty of this is that most Iowa hunters who travel can get to this part of Iowa in a half-day; do not need to purchase another license; can minimize expenses and hunt cornfields safely. Both DNR and the NRC are at fault and remiss in not having a full Missouri River Zone-3 ... and this must be fixed ASAP.

    Have a good and safe Fall 2014.

    Stu Maas
