Ahhhh.....after the long few weeks off its time again to load up and get at those ducks! From what I am being told there are tons of ducks in the state of KS. My father and I are going out to a lake in Central KS tomorrow. A.M. Im sure we will bag a bunch of mallards. Would love to hear how everyone does this weekend.

Good luck all! Be Safe! :thumbsup:

My predictions for me are. 5 ducks and 50000000 skybusters. Need to thin those sky busters out a little bit. There are way to many...

I had shot three by 8:00 this morning. If I wouldn't have had to be somewhere by 9, I would have limited out. First pass, about 60 dropped out of the air. Three shots, three kills.

discouraging numbers

Barely saw a thing this morning. Still managed two geese, but just saw very little moving, ducks nor geese. Disapointing start to the much anticipated second segment. Really expected to see a few more ducks in the area, as I HAVE been the last few weeks. Very slow today...

I tried that same pond this morning, and saw quite a few at first pass, but they wouldn't commit. There was a group of four that landed out of range, and I thought I had them convinced at that point, but no. They got up after about three minutes.

I'm pretty sure this was the same group that came in yesterday and I took three of their buddies. They were obviously more wary today. This is the second time this season that I have hunted the same place two days in a row with the same result. Did good on day 1 and crappy on day 2. I guess you can't pound them in the same spot on consecutive days. I'll give them a break here for a while and try again maybe Wednesday or so.

Went out to a local lake down here around Wichita, and 4 of us in the boat ended up bagging 9 mallards, 4 GWT, 4 Widgeon. Had an awesome hunt on Saturday. Went out today and only shot at 1 merganser.....Not sure why? I guess he was the only 1 I had a shot at today so I figured might as well! Had 2 wood ducks coming straight in at me and then at the last second glided out into deeper water around 100 yards beyond my decoys. So wishing to bag my first woodie! Pretty slow out today though. Going out in the morning will let everyone know how I do!

Hunted in central KS on Saturday. We tried a creek flowing into the main lake. When we got there we found it iced up. We decided to break a hole open and set up. After breaking the ice we discovered it was too deep to be safe for our dogs. We were afraid we would drop duck on that ice and our dogs would fall in and get stuck. After watching 4 or 5 passes go by without shooting we decided to move up the creek where it was shallow. There were tons and tons of hunters on the main lake and they were getting some shooting but not tons. from 9 to 11 we had singles and doulbes come into our decoys. My dad just watched me shoot my limit and enjoyed the show. AFter i shot my 5 drakes on 7 shots he picked up his gun. At this time the ducks started coming in one after another. My dad shot his 5 drakes in 25 minutes only taking 5 shots. These ducks were decoying so close you could have netted them. AFter our limit was done we just sat there watching group after group land right infront of us. Was truely a day to remember. My dad went back out on Monday and shot 3 ducks and then went home. These 3 ducks gave him 100 for the year and over 50 mallards. The first time he has ever gotten to 100. Doubt I'll ever reach that number. I just don't get out enough to shoot that many. I went out 12 times this year and shot around 20

One more hunt coming this Saturday. Im either going to Flint Hills or Melvern not sure yet. Ive never hunted Melvern but I would really like to scout it.
