The recent cold weather north of us and in our area has brought in some fresh ducks though the main migration is still north of us. During the weekend following the break, the species harvested remain varied with a good representation of gadwall and mallards in the bags. Hunting conditions were hampered by rain on Friday and ice on Sunday. The hunt groups are averaging significantly more ducks than in 2011-2012.
The sixth week's duck harvest was 271, bringing the total number of ducks harvested this season to 1,839.
