Wildlife Managers Say Expect A Good MN Waterfowl Opener

Wildlife managers say duck hunting is expected to be good when Minnesota’s regular waterfowl season opens this Saturday morning, September 21st. Waterfowl specialist Steve Cordts of the Department of Natural Resources says biologists continue to see favorable counts of breeding ducks in Minnesota and other parts of North America. This past spring, biologists estimated Minnesota’s breeding duck population at 14 percent above the long-term average and nearly identical to last year’s estimate of 693,000 ducks.
