Well tell us River Runner, as you know the answers.......
And for those that say ducks start pairing up in February...... I've seen drakes chasing others off in November, but that was at a park, so I don't know anything
I love seeing threads like these....just shows who understands how seasons are set.
Do any of you know why season ends at the end of January? Do any of you think Texas sets the end of season for the last weekend in January?
Really curious to hear answers to the above.
Already answered in my above post. The Feds set the seasons because of pair bonding and they feel that production would be dramatically reduced.
Now, I don't believe in this myself as I, too, see Mallards paired up as early as November. Saw a lot of Mallards paired up already this year.
I just get a kick out of people that think the state of Texas can simply move the seasons back. It is not the states or the Central Flyway council...it is the USFWS (Feds) that set the frameworks that the states have to work within.
