Having more days ofáduck seasonáin November and December in theáSouthZoneáand more during December and January in theáNorth Zoneáis aimed at improving hunter success and satisfaction, Kraai said. Several years of harvest data indicate waterfowlers in theáSoutháZoneáhave their best success during November and least success during January.
"It's just the opposite in theáNortháZone," he said. "January is their best month, followed by December. November is the slowest month in theáNorth Zone."
