Nov 12th 2017- Managers Update –
Current Bird Numbers: The DNR area bird count as of last week was 15,000 ducks.
2017 Hunter Bird Take Stands at: 7,133 Ducks and 000 Geese
Area Conditions: Conditions were quite challenging Friday and Saturday while we were iced up, but corn cover and water levels remain good in most zones. We slowed down hard Saturday once we iced up. We had over an inch of ice in several zones Saturday morning and shot a whopping 7 ducks that hunt. Thursday was excellent with over 400 ducks taken. We’re thawed back out now so take the refuge count numbers with a grain of salt
