Great way to help out the Wood Ducks! They were once in real trouble but have rebounded and will continue to increase as long as thoughtful people take the time to preserve habitat and provide nesting boxes. That is especially important in these times of sadly reduced capability of our Natural Resources Department to direct attention and funds to these issues. Maybe now that all Wildlife Management Area users have to pay for the access – not just the hunters and fisher-folk – more funds and personnel will be in place to benefit wildlife. The Book is pretty clear on our obligation to respect and steward the blessings we have been given and the individual impact, for good or ill, can be significant. Proactive efforts like duck box installation, wetland preservation, natural food enhancement, and food plot maintenance along with self-imposed harvest limits will help insure our hunting and fishing heritage. And TIP, turn in poachers, the game hogs and slob hunters posing as sportsmen put our whole outdoor heritage in danger.
