The latest duck count at Four Rivers Waterfowl Management Area east of Rich Hill, MO is 147 thousand ducks, most probably mallards.
It looks like a few strayed too far from the refuge . After breaking a hole in 1 to 2” ice and braving 17-degree temperatures this morning Jay Lang and son Chuck bagged a goodly number of birds. Their many hours of work all summer on habitat at the Club are finally paying off.
Wish they could field dress one nice, fat mallard and mail it to me.
