Neosho Wildlife Area Waterfowl Report
|Waterfowl numbers||+/- 20,000 ducks, beginning to see some species variation. Snow goose numbers are fluctuating daily|
|Mallard Migration Rank||
0= No Mallards, 1= Very Few Mallards, 5= Moderate Numbers, 10= Peak
|Water level||Drawdown efforts have continued. Pools will be completely dewatered by the end of next week.|
|Expected hunting success||For the 2014-2015 Regular season 2732 hunters harvested 4422 ducks for a 1.6 BPH average. The season seemed a little slow with the weather patterns and one mass migration that we encountered. However, this is still a very respectable BPH average for public hunting. We still have around 90 hunters that have not logged out of isportsman so please check your account and make sure you have checked out. Please remember the isportsman electronic check in and out system will be live starting this spring and no paper cards will be available. Thanks so much for your cooperation and support in transitioning into this new system!!!|
2014-15 South East Zone season dates are Nov. 8-9 and Nov. 15-Jan 25.
If the red check out sign is out at check station all hunters are required to stop. Thanks
Neosho WA is transitioning to a new daily permit system called isportsman. Hunters will need to register via PC prior to hunting at Neosho WA. Hunters will be able to login via PC, smartphone, or call in from cell phone or landline phone each day prior to hunitng to get a daily permit, and report back similar to the paper daily permits. Please visit https://kdwpt.isportsman.net/ to register prior to hunting season.
Please remember to fill out the permit with accurate information. THIS INFORMATION IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THE CURRENT AND FUTURE MANAGEMENT OF THE AREA. FILL OUT ONLY YOUR INDIVIDUAL HARVEST EFFORTS, i.e., NOT A GROUP HARVEST TOTAL.
Waterfowl hunting in Pool 8 is restricted to youth hunters and their mentor on weekends and holidays.
