Area Conditions: Good start to the week after we thawed, pretty slow weekend. Totals up to 8,426 ducks. Our refuge count is down since ice up and was higher earlier last week than it was today. Fingers crossed the ice holds off for awhile more. Conditions in the zone remain good. The forecast is threatening ice up over the weekend and early next week..
