Steve knowles answering questions on waterfowl

I stopped by the DNR amphitheater and caught Steve Knowles’ program on waterfowl. Steve is the property manager at Falls of the Ohio State Park.

Indiana has a few DNR properties that have excellent opportunities for waterfowl watching, probably the two best being Jasper-Pulaski and Goose Pond. Goose Pond is the DNR’s newest property. It has proven to be a good pick-up for DNR. Close to Linton, it is one of the premier destinations in the state for wetlands and waterfowl watching.

Each fall, thousands of Sandhill Cranes stop by the marshes of Jasper-Pulaski in northwest Indiana during their fall migration. The wetlands make for an ideal stopover for the cranes. They can be seen October through December. Jasper-Pulaski has two observation towers that provide spectacular views.

For those who are hunting waterfowl, the regulations and dates are now out for the 2009 season. If you’re new to waterfowl hunting, a hunter education class with our Conservation Officers would be beneficial.
