Heartland Outdoors: Duck Numbers

December 27, 2017 – Aerial Waterfowl Survey Blog

Wednesday, January 03

We flew the waterfowl survey on December 26th 2017 and the air temperature was 3 degrees. Almost everything was iced up, and when we found ducks, they were tightly packed into a little bit of open water.  I have included a couple of photos to illustrate my point.  Duck numbers were down considerably along both rivers, but a few of those die hard mallards and canvasbacks were holding on.  For those of you still hunting ducks out there; be careful, it’s COLD!  Thanks for following my blog….....Aaron.
