For all you individuals who enjoy having the open and close dates of our present 2 zones opening and ending on different days BEWARE the season dates that have been proposed weeks ago have changed.
Recommendations will be made to have the South Zone open and close the same day as the North...
Once again my fellow southern zone duck hunters there are those afoot who are trying once again to move our south zone duck season dates back to line up with the same dates as the North zone. It's crazy. If you value your option of having 2 zones with different start and close dates you had...
For those of you who didn't see this in the new regs yet...
The metro goose dates are now Sept. 4th-12th. NOT the 1-15th like past years.
That put a wrench in my plans, already took off September 1-3 so I could get out and hunt. I guess I will have 3 days off to scout now.
They are saying that the majority of those who expressed an opinion want the south zone moved up a week this year in order for us to have a better chance of hitting the migration. Notice when they say opinion.....they don't say informed opinions. How many are just going along with Uncle Guy's...

After our letters sent to Zenner is he still sticking with opening the season a week earlier? Tom/ Jeremy what are you hearing? I'm pretty busy tommorow but if this is gonna pass without no complaints. I could show up at the DNR meeting and make a Jackass out of myself, although I think Tom...
Well, Thursday at the NRC meeting I presented WAI and H4I's season proposal and the NRC did amend the notice of intended action (NOIA) by changing the north zone season dates to match the proposal.
Unfortunately because of how public comment is handled (and has to be handled to maintain order...

Lets try again with out the "my dad can beat up your dad" contest.
'09 Ducks boils down to this:
N zone (2nd segment) Oct 10 - Dec3 or Oct 17-Dec 10
S zone Oct 17-Dec 10 or Oct 24- Dec 17
S zone will very likely start 1 week after N zone so yes you S zoners should care about N zone dates.
