2018 Waterfowl Reports
Your welcome Pool8. Camera went Live in September. Amazing Zoom capabilities.
When we were out erecting the poles back in summer, normal resident bird activity. Really has come alive with migration activity. Should be really awesome with puddler numbers in about 2 weeks.
*Note - Closed area for hunting. Waterfowl protection area.
Live Web cam out in far west side of Lake Onalaska/Sommers chute/pool 7.
Great tool to monitor the bird activity as they migrate through the state.
Wigeon and pintails already here. Very cool watching the Eagles, Pelicans in there natural activity.
I disagree. The marshes I hunt are all smaller drainages, 30-50-100 acres. The key I have found is scout, watch flight patterns, identify food sources and set up accordingly. Just like hunting deer !
Just talked to my brother in the Mercer area. He has never seen so many teal and woodies in the rice beds on the rivers. Flocks of 20-50 teal. Hundreds of woodies... find the food and shoot ducks.
Ya theres woodies around till late oct for sure up north and with more acorns then skeeters they ant going anywhere.Blue wing Teal ya never know.3 years ago they came threw the second friday of the north opener and were gone gone in 2 days.I thought they went threw before opener but to are surprise we had a ball and shot our 12 in 30 minutes two days in a row and maybe shot a couple the rest of season.
like statewide opener. But it should be a little earlier with split in November. Or no split at all.
or open it all in mid September. and make split last week of September.
why open season so late? there will be almost no woodys in northern zone. no blue wing teal.
If You live north oh hwy 8 You may not get a chance at any of those local birds this year.
But If you like ice fishing while duck season is still open and there is hardly a bird to be found you are in luck
