It's late-May, the Dakota prairies are in great shape, and already there are bright yellow, little mallard and pintail fuzzballs on the scene, preparing for the flight south this fall. John Devney of Delta Waterfowl is an avid duck hunter, a natural born communicator. He and Ramsey talk about favorite North American duck species (it'll probably surprise you) and favorite places to duck hunt in the US. Low on the water and coming in hot like decoying ringnecks, their conversation dives into lots of interesting waterfowl hunting topics. What's going on with specklebellies in the Deep South as compared to the Pacific Flyway? What's happening with pintails - they're probably shooting too many in Mexico, right?! And what about all of today's many modern hardcore hunters traveling to Canada - that's certainly impacting the fall flight, huh? Federal stimulus dollars galore are being spent to mitigate coronavirus, but how will the 2020 Pandemic affect waterfowl conservation efforts, such as banding and censusing? All of that and more in today's episode of Duck Season Somewhere.
