Hunter success was above average on three popular waterfowl lakes for the 2015 waterfowl hunting opener in the Grand Rapids area. Minnesota Department of Natural Resources wildlife staff conducted waterfowl bag checks on opening day, Sept. 26, on Big White Oak Lake, Mud Lake, both near Deer River, and Big Rice Lake near Remer.

Hunter success in terms of ducks bagged per hunter varied from a low of 1.8 ducks per hunter at Mud Lake, 2.6 ducks per hunter at Big Rice, and 3.0 ducks per hunter at Big White Oak Lake.

Blue-winged teal, ring-necked ducks, and wood ducks were the most common birds in the bag with blue-winged teal being the most commonly bagged bird at White Oak and Mud Lakes, and ring-necked ducks being the most commonly bagged bird at Big Rice Lake.The content you are trying to access is only available to members.
