Szymanski said there were also areas struggling to attract pairs of ducks where he expected to see better numbers. "There was a fair bit of water in bigger basins, but those larger water areas aren't attractive to ducks, as they look for smaller wetlands, and those were drying up."
The water index is based on basins with water, and does not necessarily represent the amount of water contained in wetlands or the type of wetlands represented.
Szymanski said the July brood survey will provide a better idea of duck production and insight into expectations for this fall.
"And as we have seen in recent years, a lot depends on bird movements before and during hunting seasons, and weather patterns during the migration," he said.
South Dakota
The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission closed the 2017 sage grouse hunting season at their July meeting.
The closure is based on the season guidelines found within the 2014-2018 Sage-Grouse management plan for South Dakota. Those guidelines suggest a season closure if less than 150 male sage grouse are counted on priority leks and less than 250 are counted on all known lek sites. Results from the 2017 spring lek surveys indicated 77 (102 in 2016) males on priority leks and 218 (278 in 2016) males on all leks.

I feel sorry for people who don't have dogs. I hear they have to pick up food they drop on the floor.
