Nov 28th 2017- Managers Update –
Current Bird Numbers: The DNR area bird count as of last week was 16,000 ducks.
2017 Hunter Bird Take Stands at: 9288 Ducks and 000 Geese
Area Conditions: Mallards are by far the most numerous, but a good amount of black ducks are still on the area. There are a handful of pintail and shovelers hanging on, but are few and far between. The occasional gadwall or wigeon continues to show up in the bag but haven’t been recorded in counts. This has been our best season since 2010, so far, and will likely end up being our best season in over a decade.
