    How are the conditions at Shiawassee? Has the ice broke up any with the slightly warmer temps? On vacation as of tomorrow and want to get a couple hunts in.

    On a side note, how are the conditions at FP and Nayanquing ?

    I would of totally expected Shiawassee to have a far greater kill count then NP or FP

    Why FP? FP has far more hunters. They should naturally kill more birds. I don’t believe anyone comes close to Harsens though.

    curious what the kill per hunter trip equals out to this year compared to the other areas. :)

    if i remember right in 2006 or so, harsens killed like 12 or 13k birds...and shiawassee was around 9 or 10k.

    a real good season for us will be around 6-8k. last few years have been horrible...but so has all of michigan..not just us. migration was fast and short those years or after season.

    As of now Harsens is leading the way with Ducks per hunter. I know Shi is doing better than FP in that regard. NQP is doing pretty good with birds per hunter as well.

    All dependent on the ability to have/hold enough water I suppose. I think the total harvest is more impressive considering the area size difference between the areas.
