From their website:
Hunting Conditions and Status:
Updated: 28 October 2013
Quivira opened to hunting on September 1 (see chart below). IMPORTANT: despite proposed changes in some portions of the Comprehensive Conservation Plan (which are not yet decided, as the document is still in draft), NO changes to the hunting seasons or boundaries will occur in the upcoming fall/winter 2013-14 season.
Jaker, don't try the Salt Marsh , you'll be up to where you use TP in mud if you do LOL
As for the count I believe they fly over the area in an Plane and take pictures, then they figure the square feet of the area surveyed, then take the average size a duck would take up sitting, then using simple math they figure how many birds are there
If you're there for the limit, you're there for the wrong reason
