Looks a little dry here in the Mid-west

Postby benjaminayoung » Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:04 am

Went out this morning, saw 4 woodies/4 mallards, most likely locals I'd assume. With the water levels being so low (or non-existent), will waterfowl stick to rivers, or will they land in fields?

Yes I'm an OOSer, and yes I've internet scouted, but no I will no be setting up (butt to nut), in the few NWRs in the state (I like my privacy).
Most Common phrases out of a duckers mouth:
Why couldn't you have been born a duck!!!
OH S*&T, DUCKS!
Damn tweedy bird, you about got shot.
There's a whole bunch of duc..oh wait, tweety birds.
I about turned this mosquito into a duck
I just got ate up

The rivers in the drought-stricken areas are in no better shape than the marshes. Ducks and geese MUST have water (after all, they ARE waterfowl), so they will do neither: they will move on to areas that DO have water.

This will not be a good year for waterfowl hunters in Kansas.
