Hunt Results for the Wister Unit of the Imperial Wildlife Area Junior Hunt Weekend, Saturday – 2/6/16, Sunday – 2/7/16

Saturday’s special Junior Waterfowl Hunt at the Wister Unit of the Imperial Wildlife Area resulted in a very good average take for each of the junior hunters in participating. Green Wing Teal were in the number one spot for numbers of birds bagged with Snow Geese taking the second spot. The Wister Staff reported that the waterfowl take for the Junior Hunt on Saturday, 2/6/16, was as follows:

62 junior hunters checked in with 26 Northern Shovelers, 1 Mallard, 13 Gadwall, 9 Widgeon, 23 Pintail, 94 Green Wing Teal, 12 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Merganser and 4 Ruddy Ducks. There were also 35 Snow Geese harvested at the Junior Hunt on Saturday. In addition the Juniors checked in 2 Coots on Saturday. This came out to an average of 2.95 ducks per junior hunter or, with the Geese and Coots figured in, 3.55 waterfowl per junior hunter. Out of 100 reservations issued 24 arrived on time for their spot.

Sunday’s average take of waterfowl at the Wister Unit of the Imperial Wildlife Area for the second day of the Junior Hunt weekend, took a nosedive compared to Saturday’s great numbers.  Shovelers took over the first spot for numbers bagged with Green wing Teal dropping back into the second spot. The Wister Staff reported the waterfowl take for the Junior Hunt on Sunday, 2/7/16 were as follows:

19 junior hunters checked in with 8 Northern Shovelers, 2 Mallards, 1 Gadwall, 1 Pintail and 5 Green Wing Teal. There were also 4 Snow Geese and 2 Ross’ Geese bagged at the Junior Hunt on Sunday. There were no Coots checked in by the Juniors on Sunday. This worked out to an average of 0.89 ducks per junior hunter or, with the Geese included, 1.21 waterfowl per junior hunter. Out of 100 reservations issued 8 arrived on time for their spot.

So, that’s it for the 2015/2016 Waterfowl Season at the Wister Unit of the Imperial Wildlife Area. Another great season in the “bag”. Now the waiting begins for next season. Hope to see you out there.
