USFWS just released their 2011 Duck counts and there were over 45 million ducks. Better get ready to shoot Mallards and Pintals. Mallards are up 9% to 9.1 million and Pintails are up 26% to 4.4 million. Oh don't worry, Spooney's are up 14% to 4.6 million. Pond counts are at an all time high. They were talking about next year being another good breeding season with all the water in the breeding grounds. I also heard that we can expect 2 Pintail limits again this year.
