CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department predicts that waterfowl hunting will be good this year as long as waters remain open.

The game department says mild weather so far has provided holding areas for many of the birds migrating through Wyoming from northern marshes.

Larry Roberts is waterfowl biologist with the game department. He says a major bird migration went through Wyoming in mid-November, but says that more birds will be coming as northern marshes freeze up.
