Looks like they extended the late flintlock season statewide by 7 hunting days. To end on Monday the 20th. Nice!

I have been asking the BOC to extend the late flintlock season for several years now. Not sure that my opinion mattered but for such a low impact season it is nice to see the added opportunity.

Looks like 7 more days of deciding on small game or flintlock.

Long overdue. Been a proponent of expanded opportunity for many years. Sunday hunting is on the slate for 2020 as well. That one gives those of us with kids, and in my case, grandkids a day opportunity with them as well! If any of you are opposed to Sunday hunting, please consider the REGULATION allows hunting that day, it doesn't make it mandatory. What it does mean is I may be showing up in church in camo:)

Give me me a chance at a buck

Give me me a chance at a buck in early MZ and I be excited even more. This is a low impact season so the resource can handle it. Plus the pre-AR males will get the job done too. Am I asking for too much? :wink2:CleoW

Yes IMO you are asking for too much. it will turn a "low impact" season into high impact season. I think the number of ML hunters would increase dramatically and would not be a good thing for the resource.

I couldn’t find this on the meeting agenda nor the “meeting highlights” link on the site.

Where is this info?

Thanks!

Since you had luck with this may I suggest you give your opinion on shooting a bear during the late season.

I wonder why they didn’t just go to a two week extension so it’s the same statewide...?
That is what I have been asking for. It would certainly help to streamline the regulations. I guess the extra week is a start.

What’s even more weird is they went to the Monday of the week it ends in the extended wmu’s. Literally they ended it 5 days before the extended wmu’s end.

That is really puzzling to me....

How in the world did they arrive at a Monday closer for it?

Ahhhh.... I should have looked at a calendar.

Still... didn’t anyone over there say “hey if we just let it ride to the next Saturday the whole state is the same”????

That’ll mean like 100 more deer are shot state wide...? Lol

No worries. This fall before the January meeting, I will contact them again and ask that they "let it ride" in 2020/21. Maybe you can join me in asking for this and it may happen.
