Longview News-Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the Canadian Wildlife Service have just completed their annual spring waterfowl survey. The news is exciting for the duck hunter. The numbers are up for different species and a few have "all time highs" since the surveys began in 1955. Conducted each May, the survey puts the duck population at 48.6 million birds. That represents a 7 percent increase from 2011's record number of 45.6 million. Mallards, blue-winged teal, green-winged teal, gadwalls, canvasbacks, northern shovelers and scaup are all up significantly from last year, with both species of teal and shovelers at all-time highs.

Hunters would be allowed to kill roughly 20 percent of Wisconsin's wolves under rules the state Department of Natural Resources have proposed, establishing the framework for this fall's new wolf hunt. The rules package sets up a statewide quota of 201 wolves across six zones.

Some Minnesota hunters are upgrading their deer stands, trading the traditional nailed-together hunks of wood for what one official calls "mansions" in trees on public property.

Eric Sharp: Great time to fish for musky in Lake St. Clair
Detroit Free Press    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

"It's been really good. I can't say it's been better than last year, which also was great, but it's at least as good. A lot of people are catching 10-20 fish a day, and if you get into double figures the chances are good that one of them is going to be a 50-incher," said Steve Jones, St. Clair's most experienced musky skipper, who runs the charter boat Predator.
