Potwin area goose and duck hunting

Postby Fathom » Mon Apr 02, 2012 4:11 pm

We are coming from South Carolina next season to duck and goose hunt. We will be hunting Grain fields and watersheds. Late November is when we are coming out. How is the hunting in the area? we will be hunting with Kansas Farmland Outfitters. Will the specks and snows be in the area during that time or just mostly Canadas? Thanks for any info.

Currently all Waterfowl hunts will be self guided and pricing is based on availability. Unguided duck and goose hunts means we will get the hunter to the point of where he parks his truck and steps out to hunt. Once to that spot the hunter makes the rest of his duck hunting experience using his own equipment, dogs and skill. We help level this playing field occupying a niche between that of public lands hunting and small acreage, expensive waterfowl clubs. Our Waterfowl hunt is for the average goose or duck hunter that can hunt on his own and only requires the opportunity to get on the right habitat in the right area and can take care of the rest.

This is a step above knocking on doors where the goose hunter spends many a mile and hour trying to find a place to hunt.

All Kansas & Federal rules and regulations as well as seasons apply to these hunts.

Cost is $150 per day with a 2 hunter minimum.


Per their website...I'm not going to pay $150 a day for access to land. Sounds like a pretty expensive day lease on some property.

While that area of Kansas is not known for it's red-hot waterfowl hunting, there are Canada geese there. If the land they put you on is a grain field that has a roost pond nearby, you'll probably have opportunity. I can tell you this: most of the area is not tilled, and grain (wheat, milo, or corn) fields are somewhat rare. This can be bad (if you aren't on one of them), or good (if you ARE on one).
Late November can be hit or miss, as far as numbers go, just as others have said. You could limit in 20 minutes or not fire a shot in three days....don't be surprised either way.
$150/person DOES sound like a lot for what you are getting, and the area you are getting it......

For 150 a gun a day for access to land that you have never hunted, I would be thinking about freelancing it on public land. You have the same odds and save a good deal of money. As stated before, thats a lot of grazing land, not much for tilled ag compared to other parts of the state.
