Illinois waterfowlers: Durbin backs 4th zone

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Sen. Dick Durbin is backing the push for a fourth waterfowl zone in Illinois.

To be only slightly sarcastic, I really thought the idea had no chance--it made too much sense in a long state like Illinois with a wide range of climate.

Apparently, I should have believed more early on.

No, a fourth zone would not necessarily ease the spats common to waterfowlers, but it sure would make much more sense, and in the long run could give even northern zone waterfowlers more late-season options and keep the money in state.

Here's a letter from Durbin's office on Tuesday, backing the idea.
