WMA hunters see easy pouldeau limits, not so many ducks
The 2007-08 duck season, which ends on Sunday, Jan. 20, saw a good season - but not great - except for hunters who targeted pouldeau. Pouldeau hunters didn't have a problem filling their bag limits of 15 birds per hunter.
Salvador WMA hunting was above average while Lake Cataouachi was on the poor side.
ďOne problem on the management area and lake was an awful lot of water hyacinth,Ē says Baker.
The biologist believe the hyacinth blocks out the duck food, diverting ducks to hyacinth-free areas.
"But this is only a theory - I'm not sure this is the case," he said.
Bag limits at the Pier 90 launch averaged 2.3 ducks per WMA hunter and one duck per lake hunter, but Baker said that the numbers are misleading because he had to count ducks shot by pouldeau hunters in the bag limit.
"Most pouldeau hunters will shoot a duck if it comes within range, so we have to count their ducks in our bag limits even though they aren't targeting ducks."
Hunters shot mostly blue-wing teal and ringnecks.
With a cold front pushing through on Thursday, Baker said Friday should have the best conditions.
