Council Grove Waterfowl Report

Waterfowl numbers Approximately 250 Canada geese, 1,050 ducks (primarily goldeneye with some mallards), and 700 mergansers on 01/28.          
Water levels 2.9 feet below conservation elevation (1,274') on 01/28.
Hunting conditions Difficult.  Lake approximately 5% ice covered on 01/28.  Declining lake levels have pulled water away from cover edges.  Hunters may find it challenging to conceal themselves.  A thin fringe of food producing vegetation exists along some lake edges, but will not be available to feeding waterfowl without precipitation and increases in lake levels.
Expected hunting success Fair.  
Comments Low Plains Late Zone Duck Season is CLOSED.  Canada goose season is open through Feb. 15.
