A mystifying waterfowl season Winter winds usually sweep in from the northwest and across Ken- tucky bringing with them arctic air and cold temperatures. "The majority of weather fronts we had this winter came from the southwest or northeast," said Rocky Pritchert, migratory bird coordina- tor for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDF- WR). "Neither are good for migrat- ing ducks. With northeast winds, the birds follow the wind. A bird is not going to fight the weather to mi- grate." The southwestern winds brought Senior wellness --Bath Countians who attended the February Wellness Program for se- niors are pictured with guest speaker, Don Rigsby.

"There was open water all the way through the north- ern states," Pritchert explained. "With open water, there is little reason to migrate." The open water combined with the lack of snow in the northern states kept the birds at home. "Snow- fall is the primary factor in migration for both mallards and Canada geese. What you need is a good snow cover in the northern states, at least four inches minimum, but a six inch snow cover is even better to,cover those food resources. They will only mi- grate as far south as they have to in a given year. As long as they can find food, they will stay put." Although conditions were bad, there were still plenty of ducks in Kentucky when Pritchert conducted aerial counts of duck numbers. He observed 118,000 ducks in mid-Jan- uary; double the number of duck numbers in 1998 and 2000. "We had good duck numbers, but they weren't doing anything," Pritch- ert explained. "They were night feed- ing and moving back to safe areas at first light. They would spend the day on refuges or power plant lakes where there is no hunting." Also, the good rainfall in Decem- ber and snow in January filled a lot of backwater and other flood prone ar- eas with water. "The good habitat conditions really spread the ducks out," Pritchert said. He explained that ducks are very smart and very adaptable and used these conditions to their advantage. They restricted their movements to non-harvest ar- eas during the day. The goose numbers were not near- ly as encouraging. Pritchert said he expects a record low goose harvest for the Ballard and Henderson-Union reporting areas. "The lack of snow cover in the northern states kept the geese from migrating south," Pritch- ert said. Pritchert observed 263,000 Cana- da geese in January of 2001. This year, he observed only 37,000. He also said there were hundreds of thou- sands of geese in southern Wiscon- sin and in the greater Chicago area that would have migrated south. Despite the poor season, there is reason for optimism. Pritchert said the lack of harvest will mean more birds will be making the trip north to the primary breeding areas. This could translate into good production next year if habitat remains good. In addition the birds will be in great shape to migrate this spring, allow- ing them to be in prime condition to jump right into nesting. All of this should add up to better waterfowl hunting in the future. Error in 2002 Sport Fishing and Boating Guide There was an oversight in the 2002 Sport Fishing and Boating Guide in the special fishing regulations sec- tion concerning Fagan Branch Lake in Marion County, also known as Lebanon City Lake. The guide lists special regulations for crappie, blue- gill, red ear sunfish and channel cat- fish. These special regulations were removed for 2002. The only special regulations for this lake concern the ! 2 to 15 inch protective slot limit for smallmouth and largemouth bass.. All largemouth and smallmouth bass between 12 and 15 inches must be released immediately. The 2002 Sport Fishing and Boat- ing Guide is now available anywhere fishing or hunting licenses are sold or request one by calling 1-800-858- 1549.
