Waterfowl Management in Action

Duck and goose season may not be top-of-mind for many Nebraskans – except for the die-hards that never quit thinking about it.  But that doesn’t mean waterfowl management is on-hold.

I was able to tag along with our state’s biologists recently to take part in the annual Canada goose banding efforts.  We were able to capture video of the process and get an explanation by Dr. Mark Vrtiska, Nebraska’s Waterfowl Program Manager, of the importance of banding geese.

I haven’t met a waterfowler yet that doesn’t get excited about harvesting a banded duck or goose.  And its good to know that even in the heat of summer the management of our waterfowl resources are being looked after.
