Proposed Waterfowl Changes by GLIFWC

1 post in this topic

I went to the state fair and of course spent some time at the DNR building and I also picked up an Outdoor News (dated August 31st, 2007; Vol.40, No.35). The article I read was somewhat disturbing. The article is on the first page just under main picture. Proposed changes for off-reservation water fowling include new bag limits, no species restrictions and later daily close for the season. Now, if you ask me, this is moving in the opposite direction of what MN DNR waterfowl plan is attempting to achieve. The way I understand it this proposal is just asking for reduced populations. I am concerned that this could lead to significantly reduced numbers of ducks and geese if passed.

If anyone has read this article can they comment? The scope of this affects MN, WI and Michigan based off of treaty areas.
