H.R. 6013 (Migratory Bird Framework and Hunting Opportunities for Veterans Act)
Does anyone know the status of H.R. 6013? In a nutshell it makes it possible for the season to run to Jan 31 (as I understand it seasons can currently go to the last Sunday in January) and adds veterans and active duty military to the Youth Hunt. I know it passed in the House of Reps but what about the Senate? While we are on the subject, what is the last date per the Migratory Bird Act (MBA) for seasons to run? If they are trying to allow season to run to Jan 31 and we've been having the Feb Youth Hunts just how late does the MBA allow? I can remember in 1998(?) the season closure date was moved from Jan 17(?) to the last Sunday in January following political maneuvers by former Senator Trent Lott, but I can't remember if that took ratifying the MBA or if a later date had been possible but the Flyway Councils just never approved it. Anybody know?

This sounds like a Brad B question to me. Is Brad still around?
