    <P>i would like to see them drop the early season and add one to the limit bumping it up to three.&nbsp; or&nbsp;just give us that other bird when the second split comes in when the goos hunting is at its peek.</P>

    I am with Brian on this.&nbsp; Give me an extra bird during the regular season.&nbsp; If they really want to target the resident birds, then let's do away with the September early season and go to a spring season after the migrants are through the area.&nbsp; We would definitely impact the local population just prior to breeding.&nbsp; I still have the non-breeding pairs and small flocks coming&nbsp;into the farm every day.&nbsp; Also, fields would certainly be more accessible.&nbsp; All this being said, with crops going in the ground at a record pace this spring, we should have better opportunities for this year's early season as silage should be harvested and perhaps even some high moisture corn or early soybeans.&nbsp;

    I like the early season--Sept starts things off just when I can't wait any longer, and 5 birds gives me my fill of shootin.

    <P>Early season is a blast. Some of my best memories goosing is the early season. I agree the finger is mighty itchy come September. If you do your homework for the early season the birds are usually concentrated and easy to kill. Late season the birds have been shot at all the way down. Plus you never know if you'll catch migration of geese during late season. I know one year they had it and we were covered in ducks but not a goose to be seen.</P>

    <P>The flight of migrating birds they are concerned about are long gone by Jan.&nbsp; They will not consider cutting the Sept. season and give more birds during the regular season.&nbsp; With an increase in nesting pair counts and successful nesting production, you will probably see an increase in the limits during the regular season, in addition to the Sept. season. &nbsp;Federal guidelines will not allow any Feb. goose hunting.&nbsp; Jim</P>
