Waterfowl surveys show healthy duck numbers

With high continental total duck and wetland numbers, state waterfowl biologists expect a 60-day duck season similar to recent years but with the possibility of bag limit changes for certain species.

This information comes after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released continental duck numbers in the “Trends in Duck Breeding Populations” report July 12.

“This continental survey information is an essential piece in determining Wisconsin’s waterfowl season frameworks,” said Kent Van Horn, migratory game bird ecologist for the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). “The information we are seeing is promising for the upcoming season.”
