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.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
