Louisiana Harvests the Most Waterfowl

Louisiana Harvests the Most Waterfowl

This might alter where you're planning to hunt this  fall. According to the annual U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Migratory Bird Hunting Activity and Harvest report, the state known for Cajun cuisine and Mardi Gras is now known for being the state where waterfowl hunting is most abundant.

More ducks were harvested in Louisiana last season than in the entire Atlantic or Central flyways, with a total of more than 2.7 million ducks in Louisiana during the 2010-'11 waterfowl season.

According to Ducks Unlimited, Louisiana's harvest accounts for 18 percent of the United States harvest. Arkansas had the second highest harvest with 1.4 million ducks. Factoring in hunter numbers, Louisiana's harvest equated to 30.6 ducks harvested per hunter for the season.
