How about a 5 day delay and no split?

Cause there's no wind and we need another cold front. Delay split etc. I'll take it. Hopefully something will get the birds to move again.

The split is kind of pointless without a weekend being involved in it. That's when everyone hunts.

And by split, they mean the one week you don't have to consider taking off work.

I agree...definitely should involve a weekend.

Ya'll realise if it did, we'd still end the season in Jan right?

I wish they would put the split during the week of thanksgiving or.christmas. Or better yet close it for 3 weekends. Or even better go back to the 3/30 days and weed out a few wannabes.

No in all seriousness, I like the way Oklahoma does it better. Open a week earlier & close down12 days Sunday after TG.

Lot of places don't have splits. The world did not end in any of those places.

I think a mandatory break in the middle of the season is kind of silly. Just start and end the season when the biologists say it makes the most sense, but a manadatory stoppage has always seemed weird to me. I like that the season opens a week later and the split is only one week now.

I'm open to logical explanations for why the split is necessary. Maybe I'm missing something.

The State is trying to use the days available the best way they know how.

Quote:
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service or we) prescribes final frameworks from which States may select season dates, limits, and other options for the 2017-18 migratory bird hunting seasons. The effect of this final rule is to facilitate the States' selection of hunting seasons and to further the annual establishment of the migratory bird hunting regulations. We annually prescribe frameworks, or outer limits, for dates and times when hunting may occur and the number of birds that may be taken and possessed in hunting seasons. These frameworks are necessary to allow State selections of seasons and limits and to allow recreational harvest at levels compatible with population and habitat conditions.

yuppp, that is the reason I save all my vacation for December... so I can hunt during the week during prime time. 1 weekend of no action would do wonders where I hunt.

Makes little sense now that it doesn't involve a weekend.

It really doesn't effect me at all as I have a place on HPMMU I can hunt during the split week.

Please educate me, what does HPMMU stand for?

My point was that the public around me would really benefit one weekend of not getting blasted. It's to the point where literally there's a boat every 100 yards around the entire lake on weekends. The birds have no safe place to land at all.
