Lake Perris 2022/2023 Season Long Stats

The end of the 2022/2023 waterfowl season at the Lake Perris State Recreation Area revealed some interesting stats for the number of birds checked in and the per-hunter average take.
Mallards were way out in front for most numerous bird checked in with Gadwall taking the second spot. The totals for the 2022/2023 Waterfowl Season at Lake Perris were as follows:

21 hunters harvested a total of 7 Northern Shovelers, 68 Mallards, 16 Gadwall, 7 Widgeon, 5 Pintail, 4 Green Wing Teal, 2 Cinnamon Teal, 4 Redheads, 2 Ruddy Ducks, 1 Merganser, and 6 Ducks only identified as “Other”. There were no Geese taken at Lake Perris this season. 4 Coots were also checked in for the 2022/2023 season at Lake Perris. This figured out to a total of 122 Ducks and, with the Coots included, 126 waterfowl taken for the season. The per hunter average take for the 2022/2023 season came out to 1.01 Ducks per hunter or, with the Coots added in, 1.04 waterfowl per hunter.

This is where I would usually compare this season’s counts and averages and the + or – on the number of each species taken this season compared to last season but due to fact that this is the first season in 17 years at Lake Perris, obviously there are no stats from last year to compare to.

So, there you have it, the year-long stats for the Lake Perris State Recreation Area. Overall Lake Perris had poor averages most of the season. Hopefully, for next season some adjustments can be made at Lake Perris, perhaps in hunting areas and hunting buoy locations, to hopefully improve the results over this season. All we need now is for the breeding populations up north to do their thing and hopefully we’ll get the weather needed to drive the birds south early in the season and things will improve next season.
