The latest Migratory Bird Hunting Activity and Harvest Report has been released, reporting that over 15.9 million ducks were harvested in the United States in 2011, with a decrease to 15.7 million ducks harvested in 2012. The number of harvested geese was nearly 2.9 million nationally in 2011, increasing somewhat to nearly 3.2 million geese in 2012.

In addition to downloading the full report, you can also generate custom harvest trends reports to quickly and easily view the information that is important to you. With these custom reports, you can view harvest trends for a specific species in a specific state; or you can view results for all ducks or all geese on a national level or within a selected flyway; or you can see the total of all ducks and geese at the national level. Results from these custom reports are presented in line graph format to easily illustrate harvest trends from 1961 through 2011.
