We don't hunt ducks in the fall, only in Spring before ice out on the Yukon. It's a seasonal thing that the Whites learned off the Indians. Ducks don't have anywhere to land as no open water in the river, but most small ponds have melted off by early May so it's polluted with mallards, diving ducks, and cranes along shoreline. People eat duck for a few weeks. Nobody has ever heard of duck stamps, limits, or fall hunting. A few years back, some new fed park guy said the spring duck hunting had to end, was illegal; was laughed at by everybody as they had always hunted Spring ducks as far back as anybody could remember. Nothing came outta the fed guys idears and people still shoot all kinds of ducks right before ice out.
If Americans only woke up to what power they really have over Government, we would have a better country; but I doubt they ever will.
