Even if the fish aren’t biting, the ducks aren’t flying and the pheasants aren’t flushing, Doug Smith says any day spent outdoors is a good day. A Minnesota native, he’s been covering the outdoors for the Star Tribune since 1995. He considers walleyes fried over a campfire to be gourmet cuisine.

Migrant ducks have arrived, offering hunters some action

Now is the time to climb into a duck blind, as migrant waterfowl have moved into the state.

The DNR's weekly waterfowl migration report (see link below) says hunter success has remained fair to good across the state, though hunters in the south did especially well last weekend.

The report says that with cooler temperatures and favorable winds, the outlook for this weekend is excellent as good numbers of migrant ducks move in from Canada.
