Hunting hours

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if the shooting times are from 9-4 till next friday, or if it is only today which is the 30Th. I looked in the regulations and I was kind of confused. Any info would be appreciated Thanks.

Why do they start at 9:00am on opener?

Not only to give the ducks a fighting chance but to try too keep the duck hunters from shooting each other early in the morning...just a joke....If they opened it at sunrise on opening day the number of ducks that would be killed would be alot....and the people down south would get pissed...

I've tried it, hunting can be good, but is it seems like the ducks flood in AFTER legal shooting light. Awfully tempting...

I hunt in the evening quite a bit every year. If you are in the right spot it can be just almost as good as a morning hunt. I prefer it sometimes because your not fumbling around in the dark, tripping over everything on the walk out, setting up decoys wondering how they will actually look once the sun comes up, ect.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
