State's hunters hope drought won't hurt duck season
QUINCY (AP) — Illinois waterfowl hunters are pleased at this year's proposed 60-day duck hunting season. But some are wondering if the drought will mean too little food to keep ducks in the Mississippi River basin long enough.
The Quincy Herald-Whig reports (http://bit.ly/NOGx0k ) the Illinois Department of Natural Resources has proposed 60 days for ducks and a 90-day season for Canada geese.
Hunter Jim Smithson says 60 days is perfect for ducks and that he'll focus on the early part of the season because of worries over the effects of the drought.
