the above plus your Ducks Unlimited

Unlimited Magazine is one of the
finest wildlife maganizes you will
ever read. This alone is worth the
price of the ticket.

evening for the ducks. Tickets are

are very limited and once they're

There has been a recent report
concerning the upcoming waterfowl
season and the report is a good one.
Waterfowl numbers are up overall
with a decline in only a few species.
If we get some real winter weather,
we should have a good season. Black
ducks and Canvasbacks are really
hurting; but as usual, in their
wisdom, the Feds still opened the
season on them.
Their main concern is political, of
course, and not tfie well being of the
species. The people that pay for all
this, the hunters, get even less
consideration than the waterfowl. All
we can do is hope that it gets better.
