View Full Version : If You Could Pick Your2003-2004 Season

I've read and I hear alot of talk about a 30 or 45 days DUCK ( not geese) season next year due to the numbers being down the past three years and some ducks even down from the long term averages. ( if this is true - don't want to get into that..ok) If it did happen....and the season was shortened, with the normal FWS parameters of Set 1 until the last week of Jan........ What days would you like best from past success in your area?. I'd like to have it start a week before Christmas here in Southern VA and run as long as it will...for me later is better.

Sinbox If we only get a 30 or 35 day season here in MA.I would like to see it split whith some mid Oct dates and the balance around Thanksgiving or the middle of Dec.

I like the later the better! I think the latest a duck season can run (at least in CT.) is the 25th of Jan. So from the 25th back the 30 or 40 days. It seem normally thats when we get the weayher to move the birds, this last season being an exception! Your mileage may vary!

I'm a CT boy and agree with DD. the later the better for us!

I would go with a 3 or 4 day opener, then the rest as late as possible.

about one week mid-November and then count backwards from Jan. 25 for the remaining days here in southside VA. How come we can't split the state into zones like other states? Have offset seasons for the guys on the coast and us inland? Thats what I'd really like to see!

I agree the later the better. The weather we had this past year does'nt happen to often.

The later the better...Later allows me to finish deer/turkey season before concentrating on waterfowl.....PC

I agree the later the better for us in NC. and from what I've seen in maryland also (when we hunt up around Ocean City).
