ST. PAUL, Kan. (AP) -- Hunters are divided over the state's decision to start the duck hunting season in southeast Kansas in mid-November.

Duck hunting season traditionally starts the last weekend in October. But some hunters pushed for a later season in southeast Kansas because they say the ducks arrive later. Opponents say the later dates aren't necessary and waterways where the ducks stop could be frozen over later in the season.

The Kansas wildlife commission decided in August the southeast Kansas season will run from Nov. 15 to Jan. 27.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/Q2lQfA ) the hunting season in the state's other zones will open in October.
