DWR says conditions for waterfowl hunt may be best in years


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

When you wade or boat into some of Utah's waterfowl management areas on Oct. 1, the best water and wetland conditions you've seen in years will be waiting for you.

Many of the state's waterfowl management areas -- even the isolated ones, such as Clear Lake and Deseret Lake -- have plenty of water in them.

And the two main exceptions -- Ogden Bay west of Hooper and Salt Creek northwest of Corinne -- will have more water in them as the season progresses.

Abundant water means plenty of food for the birds and plenty of places to hunt.

Utah's general waterfowl hunt starts Oct. 1. You can learn more in the 2011 - 2012 Utah Waterfowl Guidebook. The free guidebook is available at www.wildlife.utah.gov/guidebooks.

You can learn more about conditions at the WMAs at http://go.usa.gov/8C3.

Justin Dolling, migratory game bird and upland game coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, says other factors, including the weather, will play a major role in the success hunters find this season. "But all of the ingredients are there."
