He must be basing his numbers on actual duck stamp sales in that state. If you add the 30,000 NRs (how many buy their Fed stamp in their home state?), the ducks shot per hunter drop in half.

Historically, I believe the NDG&F data typically shows an average ducks/hunter harvest rates of about 6 - 9 ducks per hunter.

Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas shoot a hell of a lot of ducks. Total and per hunter.

Here is the explanation right from AQ's report over on the other forum. It explains that non-resident stamps get tallied in the home state. Therefore, the hunters and birds/hunter numbers are not reliable on a state by state basis.

Waterfowl Hunters by State
Here are the "potential" waterfowl hunters per state for the 2001-2002 hunting season. This comes from duck stamp sales minus stamps sold to collectors and art houses. Stamps sold to non-residents get tallied in the state where the stamp is purchased. About 10-20% of these hunters report NOT actively hunting waterfowl despite buying a duck stamp. Another 10-20% report not killing any waterfowl.
