Re: 2015 Duck Forecast
Never made much of the predictions from DU. It's fine if you live in the middle or western part of the country. Let's face it we get very little migratory birds in PA any more. I would bet a great percentage of the birds that are shot in the state are local birds. If it wasn't for the woody population we might as well hunt in the middle of the desert. I haven't seen a major flight of ducks in at least 8-10 years.
As for the larger ducks I don't shoot them any more due to the low population levels in my area. Putting close to 200 days a year messing around the lakes, streams and ponds and you don't see any ducks around it tells me that the local populations are in a world of hurt.
