Migration Alert: Cold Temperatures in Kansas Will Help Hunters Finish Strong

Temperatures are cooling off, and if you can find open water you can find some ducks. By Field Hudnall, DU-TV host.

Atlantic Flyway Hunters Ready to Roll

Many Atlantic Flyway waterfowlers kicked off the hunting year with resident Canada goose and early teal seasons in several states, while others are eagerly anticipating the main event in the upper end of the flyway. New York often provides a good indication of what the season will hold in states further down the flyway.

Migration Alert: Good Signs for Great Late Goose Hunting

The sun sets on duck season this week in the Pacific Flyway, and now geese are the only game in town. Hunters like Jason Haley of My Outdoor Buddy took one last shot at duck hunting before moving on to late-season geese, which offer limited but excellent opportunities until March 10, when the federal framework governing waterfowling hunting closes all seasons until fall.

Migration Alert: Arkansas waterfowlers preparing for excellent finish

Two to three inches of rain fell over eastern Arkansas Jan.12, causing slash water to collect in previously dry fields and pushing the Cache and White Rivers into adjoining sloughs, oxbows and green timber flats. The ducks have responded by shifting from managed water areas into these freshly-flooded places where new food sources are available.

Migration Alert: Goose Hunting is Great

Late last summer, just before the opening bell on early waterfowl seasons, the chatter among hunters was about the record number of ducks poised to come down the flyway. Now that seasons are closed for many waterfowlers, or at least will be closed in the near future, that cautious optimism has done a 180... Truth is, just like every year, some hunters succeed where others fail.

Migration Alert: Warm Weather Has East Coast Seaduck Hunts Suffering

Earlier this week I reported on poor puddle duck hunting along the Atlantic flyway. Well, the bad news extends to seaduck hunters. A survey of guides up and down the coast points to low numbers, high pressure, and hard days on the salt water.

Migration Alert: Storm Stalls Ducks; Geese Blacken the Sky

With Hurricane Sandy last week and a cold front this week, you'd expect good numbers of Atlantic flyway birds hauling for southern climes. But with a few exceptions, recent weather in the northeast has stalled duck migrations.
