Duck hunting areas across central Illinois are ready for the season to open today.

The summer's severe drought ruined some areas for hunters so local facilities are helping out by pumping water back into areas such as Sangchris Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area near Rochester.  Officially, the season starts 30-minutes before sunrise.
