'96 GMC Jimmy SLE 4x4 2003 waterfowl season The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is propos- ing to open the 2003 duck season on Saturday, Sept. 27, one day earlier than last year and a week before the traditional opening date of the Saturday nearest Oct. 1. This year's proposed opener, which is the earliest date allowed under federal framework established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, was chosen to provide Minnesota hunters as much opportunity as possi- ble before lakes and ponds begin to freeze. The 60-day season and six duck daily bag limit are similar to last year's season, except canvasback and pintail seasons will be restricted to 30 days for each. Goose seasons will also be similar to last year; however, the Lac qui Parle harvest index and Lac qui Parle Goose Zone will be discon- tinued. Youth Waterfowl Hunting Day will be Saturday, Sept. 20, one week before the regular opener. Young hunters may take regular season bag limits including one canvasback and one pintail. Goose bag limits for youth hunters have been increased to five in most of the state Goose Zone, September goose hunters will be able to hunt within 100 yards of surface water beginning this year in this zone. A non-hunting adult must accompany youth hunters. Spinning wing decoys will not be allowed during the Youth Waterfowl hunt. The waterfowl season will once again begin at noon on opening day, but the DNR has made a commitment to promulgate a rule that will open the season at 9 a.m. beginning in 2004, according to Tim Bremicker, DNR Wildlife Division director. Bremicker said the following regulations are being proposed by the DNR, but will not be formally approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service until late September. The 2003 Minnesota Waterfowl Hunting Regulations Supplement will be distributed in early September. PROPOSED DUCK SEASON Minnesota's duck season will be Sept. 27 to Nov. 25. The daily bag limit is six ducks, and may not include more than four mallards (only two of which may be females), three scaup, two wood ducks, two redheads, and one black duck. The daily limit will also include one pintail and one can- vasback during the limited 30-day PROPANE MAKES YOU FEEL MORE AT HOME WITH YOUR HOME. * Water heaters * Comfortable - Reliable * Furnaces " Efficient Fireplaces * Barbecue , Clean - Versatile * Gas walkway lamps s Affordable Dryers i 00ur"nn"00 !

One pintail may be taken during the 30- day open season from Saturday, Sept. 27, through Oct. 26. One canvasback may be taken for the 30-day season from Saturday, Oct. 11, through Sunday, Nov. 9. Possession limits are twice the daily bag limits.

Decoys with visible moving parts that are above the water surface may not be used, according to Minnesota law, to take waterfowl, except geese, on public waters from Sept. 27 through Saturday, Oct. 11. Motorized "spinning wing" decoys are included under this definition, but swimming decoys or "shakers" are generally not restricted under this law. Public water includes all water basins where the state or federal government owns any shoreline or provides public access, or the basin is listed in the Public Waters inventory. County maps identifying public waters are available for view- ing at all county auditors offices or on the DNR Web site at www.dnr.state.mn.us. The estimated total duck breeding population of 36 million birds in the Dakotas, Montana, Alaska and much of Canada was 16 percent above last year and 9 percent above the 1955- 2002 average. In Minnesota, the number of breeding mallards declined 23 percent to .281,000, This was the first time since 1991 that the survey has indicat- ed less than 300,000 mallards, but the estimate remains 29 percent above the long-term (1968-2002) average. Blue- winged teal in Minnesota declined to 193,000 birds similar to recent years but well below last year's count, which was higher because of the late spring and delayed migration. Blue- winged teal were 15 percent below the long-term average in Minnesota, but increased elsewhere in surveyed breeding areas. PROPOSED GOOSE SEASON Minnesota's regular goose season will open in conjunction with the duck season on Saturday, Sept. 27, except for Canada goose seasons in the West- Central Goose Zone, including the former Lac qui Parle Goose Zone, which will open on Saturday, Oct. 11. The Lac qui Parle goose zone and har- vest index setting a maximum quota on harvest are being dropped this year. The quota zone was an important part of goose management for many years, but due to changes in goose hunter distribution and goose migra- tion it became less effective or neces- sary as a management tool. Harvest will continue to be monitoi'ed in the former zone and hunting regulations on the Lac qui Parle Wildlife Management Area remain unchanged. The number of days of regular and special Canada goose hunting seasons will be the same as last year in each zone. Daily bag limits will be the same as last year.
