The DNR's weekly waterfowl migration report is out, and waterfowl specialist Steve Cordts reports duck hunting success was fair to good across the state. Hunter success was generally better in the west and south, where blue-winged teal are more abundant, he said.

Here are the number of ducks shot per hunter at various locations across the state on opening day, compared to 2012: Thief Lake WMA (1.9 vs. 2.9), Tamarac NWR (2.0 vs. 2.0), Big Rice by Remer (1.9 vs. 1.5), Big White Oak (1.6 vs. 2.0), Mud Goose WMA (2.2 vs. 3.6), Roseau WMA (2.3 vs. 1.6), Canosia WMA (0.7 vs. 0.5), Lac qui Parle WMA (3.2 vs. 4.0), Carlos Avery WMA (1.4 vs. 1.3) and Swan Lake (1.6 vs. 2.9).
