The Game and Fish says ducks populations are down and were are going to have restrictive season next year. If that is the case then why vote to increase the hen limit from 1 to 2 doesnt make sense to me. I have said it for years I think they are lying to us so that they can sell stamps. Seems to me they should have kept it at 1 or voted to not allow any hens killed just drakes

Me too!!! Holy shiznit... We agree on something Manybeards>>> Just pokin' fun!!!

I never understood why it was even a consideration to allow another hen!!!

I've killed 'em when things just weren't perfect and I was gettin' on the gadwall pretty good! But I TRY hard not to kill hens!!

I hope that folks will police themselves and NOT shoot them just because it is legal!

the bottom line is we got robbed, and I dont think theres anything we can do about it unless we can vote new members on the commission.
You are right we are being robbed on everyone the issuses I have brought up these game agencies have themselves a cash cow in us hunters and they know it cant get anyone to come together on anything. If we did and cut the money off for a season I promise you changes would be made cause they understand the politics of the pocketbook.

that'll make for some ugly pictures. you'll see 6 hunters with 18 squeelers, 12 mallard hens and 6 GREENHEADS to make up a limit. just wait you'll see it on one the many hunting forums from a group of guys from SC or FL or something like that:down:

It's all part of the AG&FC's efforts to maximize the kill of ducks in 2008-2008. They sell more stamps that way.....

can you say 30 day duck season?????? 3 malard limit:banghead::banghead::censored::down::down::smack::censored::banghead:
i wish we would have that season for 2-3 years and here is why

1) it would help with the duck populations and help get it back to the way it used to be

2) it would weed out a lot of johnny come lately duck hunters that started when mojos and duck hunting become the "cool" thing to do and i could get back to more peaceful mornings duck hunting with a lot less people around:

No it wouldn't. Science has proved it over & over, you can't stockpile ducks & significantly increase the population. Two things improve duck populations....WATER & COVER on the PPR....without those two ingredients duck populations stall or fall. With them they rise, and do so very quickly.

That it will do, but don't wish too many people out of the club. We need as many as possible to keep this sport alive & to keep the radical groups in this world pushed to the side.

While lots of water on the prairie is obviously the main ingredient to good duck numbers, it is either naive or self-serving to say that the millions of ducks we shoot every year have no effect on the population. I personally would love to see the woods a little less crowded and lease prices a little cheaper.
