Waterfowl population index -
hunting opportunity thunderstorm map

Game Fish and Parks field staff created the maps below by rating areas of each county on a scale of 1-10 regarding the current quality of waterfowling opportunity. These maps will be updated on a weekly basis and should provide a good indicator of the duck and goose activity for the upcoming weekend. Just because an area appears in blue, it doesn't mean there aren't quality opportunities available. Rankings are based on daily observations of field staff and the availability of access and public land.
