Hunting conditions Poor  
Expected hunting success

  

Totals for the year were hunters 3188, harvest 5432 ducks for a 1.7 BPH average.  If you wonder how this ranks out over the past 30 years it was 14th in harvest, 17th in hunter #'s and 11th in BPH average.   We still have over 100 folks that have not checked out on the isportsman page.  If you are one of those people we would greatly appreciate your cooperation in getting checked out so we can get the final data tallied up.  Thanks so much for your cooperation and support in transitioning into this new system!!!  This information is very valuable in making management decisions and generating funding for future projects.

DUCK SEASON IS CLOSED

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.
