Good Start To Duck Season 27 Sep 12

The weather was a little chilly on opening weekend, but wildlife managers say Minnesota’s duck hunting season is off to good start. DNR officials say results varied, but hunting was good across most of Minnesota, with blue-winged teal, wood ducks and mallards comprising most of the harvest. The outlook for the rest of the season remains good as well. With three duck hunting zones in effect in Minnesota this year, officials are reminding hunters in the central and south duck zones to be aware of the temporary closure periods that start October 1st.
