Jay Robison-If this helps or maybe encourage you guys. Saturday and Sunday we received 14″ of snow in West Central Wisconsin that covered everything up. I hunt the Mississippi River around Lake Pepin area on the Wisconsin side and our hunting was excellent the entire season in which our group shot consistent limits all season. We did notice that Mallards are showing up later and staying longer. Now they should be moving south after this snow storm. Good luck and Merry Christmas

Good morning to the duck hunting world, as always they are a few doing really well, while the rest of us could use a little assistance. All the warm weather has just not brought the new ducks down at this time; this could start changing today we might start seeing a vast improvement by this weekend or even sooner. This past rain has really helped we could still use more, not everywhere got a good rain so a good slow 2 or 3 day rain would not hurt. Take care will post as soon as I have something of intrest.

First week was pretty good for us. We started out with a good opening weekend and it kept up from there. Only day we didn’t do well was on the final Sunday. Started of the season right with 6 full limits on Saturday morning by 7:50. All in all a pretty good week. Water was the main key as always. We finished up the first season with 134 birds, with 129 coming out of one field. Very few birds around right now though. Hoping to see some more rain and birds before the second opener.

Duck numbers similar to long-term average
LITTLE ROCK – Despite dry conditions across much of Arkansas, the state’s estimated duck population is very similar to the long-term average for November. Duck season is currently closed for the first split of the 2012-13 season. It will re-open Thursday, Dec. 6. Arkansas Game and Fish Commission biologists conducted this season’s first aerial waterfowl survey the week before the Nov. 17 season opener. Flying randomly selected transects in the state’s Delta region, observers counted an estimated 832,799 ducks, including 442,121 mallards. The total duck count was similar to the long-term average for the early survey period, while the mallard count was more three times higher than last year’s November mallard count and the highest mallard count since the AGFC initiated transect surveys in the Delta in 2009. The mallard population estimate was roughly double the long-term November average. A separate aerial survey took place in the Arkansas River Valley on Nov. 8. Observers estimated 7,732 ducks in the region, including an extremely low mallard count of roughly 1,000 birds, but recent field reports indicate a likely increase in duck numbers in the River Valley after the passage of a pair of cold fronts. Biologists conducted an additional survey in southwest Arkansas Nov. 16. Duck numbers were higher in this region, with nearly 22,000 ducks estimated, 13,090 of which were mallards.
