BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s fall duck flight is expected to be up 20 percent from last year.

The state Game and Fish Department says the estimate is based on a May breeding duck survey and a mid-July brood survey.

Mike Johnson with Game and Fish says both surveys found water conditions to be above the long-term average.
