Hunting Presure

Postby kcduckslayer » Thu Aug 10, 2006 6:37 am

I was thinking about this last night while talking to my dog trainer on the phone. He said that every duck in the state is going to be on his property because he is the only one with any water (he pumps and hes in Oklahoma)

That got me thinking. You boys out in western kansas dont really have any water out there (I only know what you tell me) Does this mean that KC is going to have the extra pressure of the westerners?

And if things are dry enough in and around KC this is going to limit the number of marshes and places to hunt.

With all the added pressure, maybe I will sit this season out!!! Or just get a bullet proof vest and shoot back :toofunny:

I don't think you will see an increase from Western KS people. Most people west of Topeka hunt on Private land. I had never hunted public until I moved to KC.

What you will see is the same number of hunters hunting smaller areas. Most people don't care and will set up right on top of you. There will be more compatition for the same number of ducks... in a more concentrated area.

Yeah, I don't really think you will notice any westerners up that way as well. Sounds like the only water around out here is the larger reservoirs or rivers that have some water in them. It is going to be interesting though if we don't get some pond filler rains out this way. People are going to be stacked and stacked on top of each other. Going to have do a bit more exploring this year I believe to find huntable waters were you don't have to worry about all the competition.
