Cold weather helps hunters bag waterfowl


For The Union Democrat 

Last week’s cold weather blast brought new waterfowl into the central valley and improved shooting results in private clubs and State and Federal Wildlife areas.

During cold temperatures, ducks and geese tend to be on the move in search of food. This week, the weather became a bit more mild and waterfowl will spend more time resting in closed zones and feeding more at night. Early morning shoots are usually best during mild weather.

Results from public refuges dropped somewhat last weekend in the Los Banos Complex with North Freitas Unit the best at 2.48 birds per hunter; San Luis was at 2.06; Los Banos had 1.65 and Gadwall Unit was at 1.44.

Local fishing guide Danny Layne puts that on the back burner to get in some duck hunting on Dec. 7. He hunted at the Hollister Club near Gustine with Dr. Bill Nakaki and they had a good shoot, bagging two limits of mixed species of ducks.
