CANADA, December 20, 2006 - Serious duck hunters always look to Canada to find out what the weather is doing to waterfowl habitat conditions. Here’s the latest duck dope (December 18, 2006) from our DU eyes in the field.
In British Columbia conditions have improved slightly in the coastal region and in the far northeast and Peace regions. Snow has been abundant in Alberta and the parklands of Saskatchewan in the past month, but conditions in these regions vary. Spring conditions in the Saskatchewan prairies and southwestern Manitoba will be dependent on the snow received over the remainder of the winter and in spring 2007. Conditions are generally good in the Western Boreal Forest. In eastern Canada the weather has been mild and there is little accumulated snow. Habitat conditions in the east are rated very good despite the fall-like weather.
