How many ducks do you average in central ky?

Postby Duck Hole » Mon Jan 27, 2014 6:02 pm

I was just wondering how many duck you guys kill on average around central ky. This season was great for us I thought. We killed 101 ducks. This was only my 2nd season so I don't have much to compare too but last season we only killed about 30. I know it's not about the numbers, I enjoy every time we get out and get our limits or don't see a thing.

That's pretty dang good for these parts. I'm also a Winchester hunter. Saw a lot more birds this year than normal but didn't get close to touching that many birds. Ice really messed with my spots this year

Everyone knows it's tough to be a duck hunter in Central KY. There was only one day this year I shot a limit on mallards, and far more days than that where the whole group got skunked. Last year we had better numbers, but I still struggled to find the birds, especially on the WMA's.

Public hunting around here is definitely tough. You can scratch out a few but ive never had a big shoot on public. Last year was my best number wise but we are picking up more spots between 4 of us and trading out places. So its helped us get on birds more. Tend to shoot mostly geese, but we did shoot alot of ducks last year. 2 man 6 bird limit in 10 minutes one morning using a trolling motor to keep ice out of the hole. That was my first time Ive had a duck shoot that good. Shot 2 or 3 mallard limits last season as well. 2 a piece is more like an average id say. Only skunked twice all season, ill take that every year and be tickled. Bring on the ice!

I traveled a bit last year but my pup retrieved 300 in a season. I am not mad and hope for another year like the last.

I hunted alone quite a bit so I would say half of that.

If you personally killed 150 in central ky, I need to hunt with you. My whole group killed that many.
