Had one 13 minutes early where I was, then another 10 minutes early, then another 9 minutes early.

In that span we had two pairs of mallards and a group of 4 wigeon in the hole, all left before LST.

As a deer hunter, it does boggle my mind that I hear an awful lot of shotgunning before legal shooting time...

Do you guys (collectively, not you personally) not bring watches or know how to tell time confused2

It was just an interesting observation that duck hunters are much more likely to poach (shoot outside legal hours) than deer hunters. You can almost always tell when legal time hits during gun season as you will usually hear a couple shots close to the minute. Duck hunters had me shocked this year with some being off by as much as 20 minutes, but more commonly around 10 minutes early.

I guess they figure they could see the warden if they were gonna get caught, so no worries, and if they got caught on shore they had plausible deniability, "it wasn't me, it was this other boat that was near us and they went that-a-way"

I think a lot (OK, maybe just some) of them just think they can tell by how well they can see. I will say the today with it being crystal clear and the full bright moon I could see the green on their heads way before LST, which is not normal.

Yep. And once one group fires off early, other groups seem to think they are OK because someone else already started. Never understood that mindset.

I used to work at a place in Arkansas where you had to stop shooting at noon. I would hear gunshots in there all day long and all night.

That place is a straight nightmare. It's chocked full of idiots. Went there once w a buddy and my 6yr old earlier this yr. Long story short came about 1 sec away from knocking a dude square in the mouth. I can tolerate a lot too.
