OREGON: Waterfowl population now reaching peak in eastern state, and EG for mallards at Malheur shooting grounds. EF of honkers also in area, and OVG until F. Summer Lake region offering EG for snow geese, pintails, widgeons, mallards and a few teals. EF of white-fronted geese in Warner Valley and Lakeview areas, but OF/FG until birds build up. Willamette Valley offering only FG and SF.

CALIFORNIA: Potholes of Owens Valley enjoying EF of mallards, and EG. Lower Colorado producing limits of teals. EF of pintails and mallards at Tule Lake-Lower Klamath area, and EG. Suisun Marshes OVG for pintails. San Joaquin, Sacramento and Imperial valleys report PG due to BW.

NORTH DAKOTA: GF of mallards moving in from Canada, and GG can be found in northern third of state at Devil's Lake, Rugby and up to Kenmare. For goose hunters Oaks and Ludden areas report EF of snows and blues. OG as cold weather advances.

NEBRASKA: GDW too good, as blizzards hit western state last week with up to 20 inches of snow and gales to 70 mph. EF of birds moving, however, and shooting should peak this week; OVG.

TENNESSEE: SO Nov. 7 and FF of honkers already on Athiwassee Refuge in Chickamauga Lake. Generally BW promises PG/FG for time being, but State Game and Fish Commission managing a smile over woman who called to ask if she and husband could use their houseboat for a blind and shoot ducks from the windows. Commission told her that was fine as long as houseboat conformed to state and federal blind regulations, but carefully explained that most ducks would be inclined to avoid large white houseboat in hunting season or out.
