Hunting conditions

Southeast Zone-  Opens Nov. 11, 2017 through December 31, 2017      and        January 6, 2018 through January 28, 2018

Fair, once again not much shoreline vegetation this year.

   DU Marsh is open, and consist of standing flooded Milo and Corn, only 50% of full water level.     Lower marsh will not be filled this season, as it needs a dry down and infrastructure project completion.  Upper Marsh below dam is open to hunting.  Ducks are loafing in open water thorough day. The large sedimentation basins located below damn are not open to public hunting and are under private ownership, but should benefit all, as protected loafing areas that are out of the wind.

Expected hunting success  Should be very good.  Lots of birds roosting on lake at night, and loafing during day.
