My buddy just got back from Canada last week. Here is part of an email he sent me....
"First as a FYI regarding the duck numbers. It appears the reports are accurate-populations are way up. Every pothole held mallards. It should be a phenomenal fall season.
This trip, the three of us were able to shoot our limit of mallards everyday. Three of the five days the limit on birds was harvested within the first 30 minutes.
Canada geese were not as abundant this year. I was only able to find a field they were using on the last day."
