Hi huntingcountryboy,

Colorado is between the Pacific and Central flyway so the ducks are out there. Ducks Unlimited has a new aerial "Map" tool, where follow waterfowl hunters can submit reports of waterfowl activity. I believe you have to be a DU member to access the "Map" tool. I have used the tool and it's the best I have seen. You can point duck hunting spots with pin-point accuracy and the MAP tool will display aerial shots you won't believe!

Plus, scouting local places an hour before sunset is invaluable. Another tip is asking local game wardens, farmers, etc. This is somewhat of a joke, but is true for most water fowlers including myself. Water fowlers are quick to spot ducks and geese flying in the sky! The next time you see any bird migration, make a note of the time, place and direction you saw the birds flying. You can narrow down where the ducks are by using the above techniques.
Using maps and spotting waterfowl flying patterns are the first step then follow-up with scouting local places an hour before sunset is invaluable.

Good luck!

Keep the family traditions alive!
