Description

Title:Waterfowl of Illinois : status and management
Author(s):Havera, Stephen P.
Subject(s):Illinois
Waterfowl
Waterfowl management
Geographic Coverage:Illinois
Abstract:Because of the high quality and abundance of its wetlands and deepwater habitats, Illinois hosted legions of waterfowl and other waterbirds. It is not surprising that a strong and colorful waterfowl tradition emerged in the Prairie State, particularly along the Illinois and Mississippi rivers. Market hunters found abundant waterfowl to harvest and ship to restaurants throughout the eastern United States, and private duck clubs were established in the late 1800s, some of which continue to operate.
