Excellent breeding conditions this past year in the northern Prairie region and Canada should mean productive hunting for the opening of duck season Thanksgiving Day. "Every population of every species but widgeon are holding their own or up big time," said John Brunjes, migratory bird biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
