Was just wondering when fish and game do there ground counts , how do they go about it? Do they pull up to boat docks and count from there vehicle ? Or walk public access points around the lake and glass from a distance? Just a thought I had :huh:

no clue. i never understood how they can count KY and see 500 puddlers and then you go hunt and see 10x that. same with divers.

I dont get too caught up in all the counts.

They do it from a plane I believe... Don't ask me how, but those guys are trained to spot/ count waterfowl from the sky

They have cancelled the flyovers a season ago now the state only does drive bys lol! Don't tell me on the last count they did that there were no coots on cedar creek or fowl at all with the freeze ups we have been having there should have been at least 4 local ducks or geese on it . :biggrin:

When they did do the flying counts I believe they took pictures and then made a grid and counted within the boxes. Just a rough idea basically.
