Update on the 2019 – 2020 Duck Hunting Season
Well, we just hit our halfway mark for the 2019 and 2020 duck hunting season in Southeastern Missouri and great news… so far it’s been great!
Not as many mallards as we would like, but the shovelers and pintails have provided some really good days in the fields. Guys out in the field have been averaging about 3 birds each on a hunt. Shovelers and pintails have been the most common each day but hunters have also been harvesting a variety of birds, including widgeon, green wing teal, gadwall, and mallards.
The Pittsburgh boys had a blast. 2 day (2/19,2/18) conservation hunt, 4 guys, 2 blinds, 2 guides, 73 snows, blues, ross, and 2 bands. Read full review on Facebook.
The forecast for the remainder of the season (season ends January 31, 2020 in SE Missouri) is looking good with steady cold fronts pushing birds south and warm-ups pushing birds back up from the southern states. The weather has really kept the birds moving back and forth not allowing the birds to become stale after a few days.
Snow geese are overly abundant so far this year with a really good number of juvenile birds mixed in which really gets us excited for the spring conservation order in February of 2020. We still have some openings for guided snow goose hunts. Just let us know when you’d like to join us and we’ll get you on the books.
