AR has the best green timber public land duck hunting in the US. What we have in this state is a diamond in the world of duck hunting. And most duck hunters know it. Like going to South Dakota to Pheasant hunt or Colorado to elk hunt. Unfortunately, hunt quality suffers greatly due to over crowding. G&F is between a rock and a hard spot. One of their tasks is to provide opportunity for as many hunters as they can. But, there comes a point in time when the quality of the hunt is so affected by the quantity of hunters that something should be done to redeem the quality. G&F has tried pretty much everything to maintain some quality while maintaining opportunity for everyone. But until this year, everything they did was an effort to contol hunter actions - not hunter numbers. The restriction on ooser licences seems to not have curtailed numbers. I am not sure if all oosers were kept out of the wma’s if the resident hunters wouldnt make up the difference. Too little ground and too many hunters - and too good of hunting. I know a lot of folks who go to the green timber grounds from my area because the hunting is so much better. A draw would be terrible for the residents who depend on those areas for all their hunting. If a draw were done right - it would be a good deal for someone like me who would just like to go a few times a year. But I would not favor a draw on my behalf at the expense of the locals losing their place to hunt. It is a hard call. I dont think any restrictions on hunting methods is going to reduce the number of hunters - I think that is going to take a restriction on the number of hunters - somehow - and g&f is going to fight doing that to the bitter end.
