Agreed, some members of the commision use their power to adjust season dates to benefit their agenda and our say so really is irrrelevant, which is why i quit filling out the hunter surveys. Rickyp, you mentioned about hunters being able to set up the zones around their prime hunting time, but with the zones being so large i would think it diffucult to set a season thats great for the entire zone because said zones vary in terrain so much. What are your thoughts on this? Again i hunt the coastal zone primarily and we have marsh, bayous, ricefields, crawfish ponds, etc, etc. as im sure the west and east are diversified also.
i bring that up bc we do very well late in the season, our records show, as opposed to early, but not 5 miles down the road a friend of mine's property is exactly the opposite, and for the most part the area i hunt is better later from opinions of surrounding hunters. if i pushed for a latest possible closing that would f%*# their hunting up just like the early opening this year did mine. But i think everyone should get a peice of the pie, Thats why i say get rid of the zones bc while they may be needed bc of terrain diversity throughout the state, thier can be ppl within the same zones that dont have the same success, with a 3 split season it would at least give both a chance, and strip the commision of the power to adjust zones/dates according to what suits some of them best. Just ones opinion, I wish we could as a duck hunting community realize that whats best for 'me' just might ruin the other guys hunting and vise versa. Thats wishful thinking though..................
