re: could 60 and 6 be coming to an end....


When was the last time it was a 30 day season?

But there was a lot less BS with duck hunting in the 3 and 30 days.... that's for sure.


It makes me excited just thinking about no mojo ducks. No guys shooting ducks at 80 yards. No fights for the guys who hunt public land. We could see a nice decrease in prices for duck hunting land, leases, blinds, etc. For people like me the limit could be one duck and I would go out and hunt. Only downside would be no lead #6's.

That would be the limit. Clearly not everyone would reach that. Just like not everyone kills 6 deer per season or whatever it is. Pick any number you want. The point is it doesn't restrict the amount of time I can hunt, while still decreasing the amount of birds killed. If the limit is 60 birds per season then you can effectively hunt everyday and only kill 1 as opposed to killing 2 a day for 30. Pick any numbers you want as long as the math adds up. The point is...weekend hunters get to hunt more.

I agree with your comments. I hunt both public and private during the season. Probably averaging 25 hunts a year. As a recent college graduate I have realized that work greatly reduces the amount of time you get to spend in the duck blind .

Would you see the same results (less people on WMA's, cheaper leases) with 2/45? Why not that as opposed to 3/30?

Also, does that mean lease prices are cut in half if the season is only half as long? Serious question. As I said I'm only accustomed to 6/60.

I say most definitely. It might take a minute for everything to equal out but I am sure the prices would fall.

I have said for years that a 6 duck limit times 60 days equals 360 ducks. Give me 360 tags and if I can kill them all in a weekend thats my buisiness!

I can't understand why we arem't trying to do this. For one, alot of days are better than others. I know in the rice fields we have days you could kill 5,6,7 limits easily. Then days you struggle to fire your gun. Why not give the hunter a max number of birds to be killed per season and let them decide whnen they kill them.

The reason that will never happen is because the bioligist know the average hunter will only harvest "X" amount of birds. If they approved a tag system that average number would skyrocket.

Scenario: You are sitting on a deer stand. Your friend text and says today is the day. You go and kill a red wagon full and your yearly average of birds killed goes up!

Then they would have to start worrying about the sac au lait population, cause those bitches would really be in trouble.

Mid 80s they started dicking with teal season if memory serves me correctly. Old guy across street started upland hunting, gave me a refrigerator box full of Herters cork dekes. Deer leases went up.

You fine gentlemen are a lot older than I thought y'all were. I mean I'm not that young, but I was still a baby while they were fricking with y'all teal season.

86 teal was 16 days, 87, 9... 88 gone....

this also coincided with us having to switch to steel and that too drove some people out..

goose hunting was awful easy with lead BBB

Close enough choupique.

First goose was with a 20, #4s. Dropped that barred mofo like a bad habit.

I was under the impression that it is against the law to drain land that has been designated as a wetland. At least I know it is in Alabama and Tennessee. We have spots on some of our farms that are classified as wetlands and we cannot drain them for any reason. You can cut trees off of them but you have to leave the stumps.

I remember my uncle hitting one at eagle lake so high you could shake the bird and it rattled. Every bone was broken.

Yeah, lead shot was some awesome shite.

What is crazy is if you have never duck hunted with lead nobody can really make you understand how lethal the stuff is/was.

One of the biggest scams out there is the WRP program. Most let the government plant the trees on their property then just deer hunt it. Supposed to be that 20 or 30% is flooded as wetland but alot of them don't even put the boards in to collect the water. It's ridiculous.

One my hunting partners always puts 5 or 6 in my blind bag before every hunt. When I find out who it is I'm going to shake his hand.
