I think that's a better idea for sure. I'm in Arkansas right now. Every feild was covered up 2 yrs ago w ducks, it was crazy. Last yr not so much this yr not so much. Today I've only seen just a handful of ducks on ponds or feild.

Just take out the split and open a week later and I'd be happy. 5 day split is just plain stupid.

Ya, i really dont understand the 5 day split. Unless we get a big freeze up north, we're still going to hunting stale birds. Im all for opening mid/ late November and running into February.

I always heard the reason it ends in January was because the biologists said they really started to pair up in February. And that it was a federal regulation.

That definitely seems to be when Texas starts seeing bigger numbers, though. I agree with FowlDreams, though. That sounds ideal.

Better yet they should start at Jan 31 and go backwards 74 days(Feds only allow seasons to go till Jan 31 and central flyway is 74 days excluding hpmmu). Whatever date that lands on is opening day regardless of the day of the week and end on Jan 31 regardless of the day as well.

That makes way too much sense.

That's what they say but I still don't see what difference it makes if I kill a duck in January or in February. That's still one less duck to breed either way.

Always kills me to see huge numbers of ducks after close. But i always tell myself, "next year will be even better." The last couple yesrs, thats been a lie.

Or add 5 days (split) to the starting day- 12th or 14th whatever it was. That would put u starting on a week day so it would require some type of split...... hammer maybe that's what they did already?

Or if you take 2 mallard hens, your done for the day! Geez they had the old point system which I understand was rediculous to remember, and changed from year to year?

Speaking of mallards....why is it that the most populated duck on the continent has a lower limit and is the only one with a hen restriction???
