In MN we had good nesting duck #s compared too the averages, but the broods count will be down due to the dold wet weather of May and early June. Same for ND and MB from what I have been reading. Most of Sk is fair nesting at best this spring (drought), same for AB
A bright spot for the Snow goose hunters is that there could be a bumper crop of goslings this fall. In the high artic, a early spring from 2 to 4 weeks this year. That could result in a bumper crop. As one guy put it, it has been the most favorable nesting conditions that he has seen in 40 years. But in nature you never know, 1 big snow storm and 1/2 the goslings would be gone.
