The arrival of 2023 hunting seasons is worth celebrating

Joe Robison is one of the most dedicated, knowledgeable waterfowl hunters I have ever met. So when he invited me to join him for the waterfowl – goose and early teal – opener this year in Michigan, as he has many years, how could I decline? Sept. 1 has been opening day of hunting season for decades now. It was the opener of the 10-day “early Canada goose season” (remember that?) – and can you even believe we have 107 days of goose hunting now? Then about a decade ago, opening day expanded in scope when the feds finally allowed us to have an early teal season, too.
