Review for week ending
Cold weather this week formed some ice on the fields. Most of the fields had ¼ to ½ inch of inch hunters still managed to get out into the fields. The river zones, flooded woods and rookery finally got some hunting pressure this last week (moving water keep these units open). We experienced our first snowfall this week receiving an inch of snow. Today we received three inches of freshly fallen snow.
Refuge count was not done this week due to the holiday and scheduling conflicts. .
No change in water levels this week.
Thus far we have harvested 6,889 ducks ducks and 705 geese during 5214 hunter trips. Bid per hunter trip is an average of 1.45 birds per hunter trip.
What to expect this week
No special events.
