I meant on Brookies. For Browns I agree, sometimes it can be tough to find Browns under 12”.

Not to ruffle any feathers here...

But I consider any yes vote on this question to be irresponsible. Not because it wouldn’t work in the Driftless, but simply because it encompasses the whole state. Draw a line, or forget it.

I think I'd agree with you. I'd love a longer harvest season, but I also don't mind having my run of the place in April, so no skin off my back if I don't have to fight the masses til may Razz
