St. Clair Flats – Harsens Island Update 10-30-17

Oct 23rd 2017- Managers Update –
Current Bird Numbers: The DNR area bird count as of last week was 20,000 ducks.
2017 Hunter Bird Take Stands at:  3659 Ducks and 000 Geese

Counts bumped up significantly later in the week, bringing our total  around 20,000. Many more mallards in the refuge, increased shovellers and a few straggler blue wing teal showed up for a couple days. Several redheads spotted as well.

in the corn zones remain excellent. Water levels in the west side have been brought up a bit, as
will the east side and the remainder of the west side zones. We’re in very good shape with cover
and water levels. We’ve received little to no complaints about boats damaging corn thus far.
