Duck hunting improved again last week as 31 hunters at Finney-Ramer bagged 31 ducks and one goose for a 1.0 duck average.
At the Sonny Bono Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge 64 hunters bagged 99 ducks and 22 geese.
Wister had the best averages last week as 412 hunters bagged 907 ducks for a 2.2 average. In addition, hunters at Wister took 59 geese.
Most of the increase of ducks can be attributed to an increase in the number of shoveler and American widgeon arriving in our valley.
Goose hunters, shooting in eight private locations near the Westmorland refuge at the north end of Vendell Road, reported nearly full limits of three white geese.
