If you think the mallard population has been bad wait till next year. So if your a true waterfowler and have a love for the birds you'll do the same and spread the word.

The northern pintail and lesser/ greater scaup are sadly 17% below long term average. So... If we go by data and you want to make a statement don't shoot any more pintail or scaup. Old Mr. Greenhead is doing just fine. So shoot em up if you can. With in your legal parameters of course.
The thing about the water situation is... Just because it is dry in your back forty does not mean it is dry in the duck factory of the midwest or the boreal forests of Canada. USFS recorded substantial habitat improvements in 2013 from 2012.
If you want to see something sad... Drive around with me during hay cutting season. Nest after nest destroyed during the first cuts.
