The latest Migratory Bird Hunting Activity and Harvest Report has been released, reporting that nearly 11 million ducks were harvested in the United States in 2015, with a slight increase to 11.6 million ducks harvested in 2016. The number of harvested geese was about 2.5 million nationally in 2015, increasing to just over 3.2 million geese in 2016.

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.
