Heavy rains in the US PPR

Postby h2ofwlr » Mon Jul 04, 2005 9:42 am

More heavy rains in the last week in the PPR of the US. Actually way too much in many areas. Most flooding since spring of '97 and the summer rains of '94 in ND.

Mixed results. The heavy rains were from mid May until last week. A bit late to be much help in early nesters like Mallards and Pintails, and some of their nests undoubtedly got submerged. Later nesting ducks like Teal and Widgeon would be of better benefit. Unfortunetly the cool damp weather does not boad well for new ducklings as warm sunny days are best for survival. Thus mixed results because of the timing of the water. But long term it means there should be good water for fall hunting and next spring the conditions should be above average due to the existing water.
