Proposed Late Waterfowl Hunting Seasons Open to Comment

The proposed 2014-2015 late waterfowl hunting seasons and bag limits are now available. DNR will accept public comment on the proposed regulations through August 19, to be finalized in early September after DNR reviews citizens input and obtains approval from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The proposed youth waterfowl hunting days are November 1 and February 7. These special youth hunting days are part of a national effort by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and state wildlife agencies to increase participation in the rich tradition of waterfowl hunting.

The proposed regular duck season opener would run October 11 through 18. The second and third split seasons would be November 8 through 28, and December 16 through January 24.

TODAY’S murder mystery – DEAD ON – Chapter One

Marcus Rydell instinctively rushed from his bedroom and out of the apartment, his 9mm in hand, taking the stairs two at a time. Even here in the stairwell, he could hear the distressed, keening cry of what sounded like a wounded animal, but it was all too human. Definitely a child’s scream, which meant probable cause for him to break down a door, something he’d always relished doing when he’d worked as an Atlanta cop.

The thought pumped blood to his every artery and to the brain. It felt wonderful, like a balm, like a spring shower and train whistle all conspiring to wake him the hell up and out of his previously paralyzing depression.

As he approached 58-B, Marcus made out words coming from an adult male inside. The man’s words were halting, pleading in turn, saying, “Hon-hon-honey, please n’more. Don’t h-hurt me! Please! I’ll be good to you, sweetie. I swear!”

The child endangerment laws left no doubt in Marcus’s mind. He shouted through the door, “I’m coming in! Open up in there, or I kick it in!”
