Wetland management for better waterfowl habitat. Interested in wetland management for waterfowl (and I know from countless inbox requests for this topic that many of y’all are) then this 3-part series is right in your wheelhouse. It’s no accident that we’re dropping this series when it’s time to start readying your wetlands waterfowl habitat for next season! Regardless of where you hunt, better understanding duck habitat needs will make you a more successful hunter. As USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Wildlife Biologist in the Mississippi Delta, Kevin Nelms is a duck hunter that has spent the past couple decades designing and developing numerous private-lands waterfowl impoundments pursuant to Wetland Reserve and other Farm Bill-related programs. He’s worked extensively with private landowners throughout the region, improving desirable duck habitat conditions, enhancing duck utilization, even putting together a handbook that Ramsey considers must-have staple for waterfowl habitat management (refer to related links in podcast description for your own PDF copy). In today’s Duck Season Somewhere podcast episode, Ramsey and Nelms make introductions then cannonball off the bow into murky subject matter, discussing prevailing silver-bullet misconceptions to waterfowl habitat management; duck life-cycle requirements on the wintering grounds; why recognizing and satisfying certain life-cycle requirements may attract more waterfowl; managing vegetative succession; the importance of invertebrates; and more.
