Mast crops (acorns and such) have not fared well at all, and ducks will not find this traditional food source in many areas. Natural foods, such as millet and smartweed, will still provide duck groceries in many areas even if affected by drought. The issue here, however, is that this food source needs to be flooded to be available. This will be the case both for making duck food accessible and for making hunting locations available. Areas with water management capacity, assuming that water sources have not dried up, will provide prime local spots for waterfowl and waterfowl hunters. The concern at regional scales, however, is that resources may not be sufficient to sustain birds and hunters for long. This could mean compressed seasons, greater short-term harvest, ducks and geese in different locations (e.g., reservoirs and rivers), etc.
