Migration Update – December 4, 2013

Winter storm Cleon ignites migration activity.

As arctic air pushes across the Great Plains into the Mississippi and Ohio Valleys, waterfowl activity is expected to increase significantly and reach peak migration levels throughout the Central and Mississippi Flyways throughout the week. The near-record number of mallards resting along the Missouri River corridor in South Dakota are already on the move. Reports throughout the Central Flyway confirmed heavy migration activity in Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas and the Texas Panhandle. As arctic temperatures move east, the abundance of waterfowl along the Illinois River are expected to move further south over the next few days as ice builds in the northern third of the nation. In short, winter storm Cleon has ignited some of the best migration activity of the season. Be Sociable! Share this article with a friend. Tweet

Migration Update – November 11, 2013

Mallards arrive in MN - Member Photo credit, Swampgas

The mid-continental mallard population has begun to move down the Central & Mississippi Flyways.  Mallard numbers in the Dakotas and northern Nebraska increased significantly over the past week, as well as numbers in Minnesota, Wisconsin and northeastern Iowa.  Diver numbers in the Great Lakes region continued to rise from Lake Superior to western basin of Lake Erie. Hello folks, and, as always, welcome to Waterfowler.com. A quick glance at the NOAA snow cover map reveals the mystery behind our nation’s current migration status.  Accumulative snowfall across the Canadian provinces has ignited the first push of mallards into the lower-forty eight states.   While a number of storms did occur in the U.S over the past fourteen days, those storms occurred below the bulk of the mallard population and have since return to average/above average temperatures, which resulted in moving early migrants further south and very few northern birds to replace them. … Continue reading

Migration Update – October 25, 2013

Colder temperatures prevailed across the northern tier of our nation this past week – igniting of a burst of migration activity for blue-winged teal and wood ducks.  The unseasonably warm days of early October have transformed into blustery, cold winds, flurries and even snow accumulation in the Great Lakes region.  While one would expect a full-on barrage of fresh migrants in the north, the temperatures have done little more than push early migrants south as the hardy ducks continue to trickle down the flyways. Hello folks, and, as always, welcome to Waterfowler.com. As the days of October begin to wane, the duck hunting community is continually reminded that weather and hunter success are a fragile, symbiotic relationship.  As weather patterns become more extreme and less predictable, hunter success and the annual migration also become less predictable.

Hunting is underway in various northern states and the first flights of ringed-neck ducks have been reported in the northern Great Lakes region.   While the best of the fall migration is yet to come, wood ducks, teal and local mallards continue to provide excellent early season action for many hunters.   Special youth hunting seasons have passed in a few states but there is still plenty of time to get that budding “duck dynasty” fan away from the television and into the great outdoors for an introductory hunt. Hello folks, and, as always, welcome to Waterfowler.com. Unless you’ve been hiding under a pile of rocks or have sequestered yourself from entertainment television, you are, like most Americans, familiar with one of America’s most popular reality TV series of all time, Duck Dynasty. While viewers are attracted to the show for many reasons beyond the fact that the bearded Duckmen actually duck … Continue reading

Migration Update – September 14, 2013

Early season resident goose and teal hunting are underway in a number of states. Hunter success has varied greatly on geese due to warm temperatures and limited activity. Teal numbers are increasing throughout the flyways ahead of the current cold front in the Mississippi and Central Flyways after a reported slow start to teal seasons in the north. Hello folks, and, as always, welcome to Waterfowler.com. Hunting was hit or miss for many early season hunters over the past week. Goose flights were limited to the first hours of morning light due to extremely warm temperatures across the Great Plains and Mississippi Valley. With the first substantial cold front of the season upon us, hunter success is expected to improve dramatically over the next week as the teal migration kicks into high gear on the favorable winds dropping down from Canada.

Major Milestone for Families Afield—1 Million New Hunters!

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The future of hunting is brighter today than it was nearly a decade ago thanks to the extraordinary success of Families Afield, an innovative program that has introduced 1 million newcomers to hunting. This impressive number demonstrates that interest in hunting remains high and that what’s needed to spark a lifelong passion for hunting is a proper introduction enabled by state regulations. With success in hand, Families Afield’s call to action is this: If your state offers an apprentice hunting license, make it a point to bring a newcomer along this hunting season; or if you’ve never gone hunting before, seek out a mentor and give it a try.
