guys we need to get organized and speak up against these issues! the people of louisiana should have more say so in what is being done to affect our duck hunting! we see the problems because this our land, its painstakingly ovbious to most people that are from here what needs to be done! one unified voice from everybody who hunts/fishes in this great state needs to be heard!!

we need to tighten the laws on how farmers deal with their excess grain that is not harvested and left on the ground! i understand there are laws in place to control the issue, but ITS NOT ENOUGH! when you start farming grain feilds and heating ponds specifically for ducks, you are deliberatly altering their migration patterns! why would they want to move when everything they need is being hand fed to these birds? Don't give me wrong, I am a firm believer in the conservation and preservation of the sport, I have no trouble abiding by bag limits or any hunting regulation! But I and everybody else who hunts these birds would like to see more throughout the year! Something needs to be done weither its enforcing more laws against farmers and land owners in the north, altering the 'traditional' season dates, making more of an effort to combat invasive grasses such as salvaynia and water lillies, or adding freshwater diversions! Louisiana is getting the short end of the stick when it comes to duck hunting these days and we need to speak up!

this is a very big deal for everybody who hunts in louisiana, coastal zone exspecially! we dont have hard winters like we use to have, it takes birds longer to make the migration these days! we need to stop going by the 'traditional' dates of the season! ITS CRAP! the birds really showed up where i hunt near cocodrie about 3 weeks ago, and will continue to poor in through out february! i personally would like to see the second split of the season open NOW!! and go into the next month when the duck numbers are actually here!! we need to raise hell about this and fight to get our duck seasons back with the times, which are changing every year!!
