The waterfowl hunting forecast for 2012-2013 will be dependent on weather and available resources as always. Here in the midwest, we are enduring one of the worst droughts in decades. Many places have seen less than a few inches of rain since June. Soybean futures contracts are trading around $13 per bushel while corn is trading around $9 per bushel. Not only will this drought have a severe impact on everyday expenses like gas and food, it also brings a heavy cost to waterfowl hunters in the affected areas.
