Duck Numbers are Horrible

Postby duckhuntingchat.com » Tue Aug 12, 2008 11:50 am

Put on 400 miles the past 2 days scouting geese for the opener and I've never seen so few ducks. There's nothing to sugar coat, I only saw one large concentration and I was in and around the Prairie Pothole Region.

SD has a lot more water so hopefully they'll pick up the slack.

I have seen the same thing. It has been very dry and even where there is water I'm not seeing many ducks. Reminds me of when I was in high school during the drought of the early 90's. :sad:

I'm in the S.E. part of the state and the lack of ducks is overwhelming. I hear a lot of people saying "go here, go there" and the truth is that no matter where you go your going to see a big diffrence from last year and not in a good way either. Some area's will be better than others of course and scouting like always is going to be key.

It's dry all over the state. We really need a hell of a winter to loosen the strangle hold this drought has.
