Waterfowl Harvest Management Series, Part 18: Atlantic Flyway Multi-stock Harvest Management
As eastern mallards declined in the early 2000s, waterfowl managers developed a new approach for setting duck harvest frameworks in the Atlantic Flyway. Termed “multi-stock management,” this approach steps away from mallards and relies on 4 species that better capture harvest opportunities for eastern hunters. Dr. Min Huang and Dr. Pat Devers rejoin the podcast to provide details behind this approach and discuss other issues on the horizon for waterfowl management in the U.S.
Waterfowl Harvest Management Series, Part 17: Eastern Mallard AHM, the Beginnings
In the late 1990s, waterfowl harvest managers in the Atlantic Flyway began exploring new approaches to tie harvest regulations for their states to eastern mallards and other duck populations that were the primary source of Atlantic Flyway harvest. Dr. Min Huang, Connecticut Dept. of Energy and Environmental Protection, and Dr. Pat Devers, USFWS, join the podcast to lead a discussion on these early days and eventual implementation of Eastern Mallard AHM. www.ducks.org/DUPodcast
Fact or Fiction: Private land conservation, HIP registration, and corn for impoundments
In this inaugural episode of our Fact or Fiction series, hosts Chris Jennings and Dr. Mike Brasher give the straight talk on three questions brought to us by our listeners. How much of DU's work occurs on public vs. private land, do you have to register for HIP separately in each state in which you hunt, and does DU provide corn for managed impoundments? The waters can get a little muddy out there, so we’re jumping in to provide some clarity.
Always interesting, good variety of all things waterfowl hunting and conservation
Great information on the GTR’s.
