Nov 7th 2017- Managers Update –
Current Bird Numbers: The DNR area bird count as of last week was 22,000 ducks.
2017 Hunter Bird Take Stands at: 5,766 Ducks and 000 Geese
Area Conditions: This was quite possibly the best week of duck hunting I’ve seen since I’ve been here, especially Monday through Wednesday. Between Monday and Tuesday we took 870 ducks and averaged over 3 ducks/trip. Just phenomenal hunting. It dropped off from there but remained steady.Conditions in the corn zones remain excellent. We’re in very good shape with cover and water levels and are done flooding. We’ve received little to no complaints about boats damaging corn thus far.
