What are you guys seeing and where?
I'll go first. Went bow hunting this weekend and there is a slough beside my stand that the rain has filled back up. Must have been two flocks of woodies come in and stay most of the morning. I'm geussing maybe 24 or more(in shelby co.) Three flocks of geese and one realy nice Buck that just would not coperate.

By the way everyone ready for gun season?

Were you hunting near Guist creek?. I am not ready for gun season, I am more of a bow hunter. I think the gun season takes away from the bow hunters. Not saying anything bad about gun hunting, heck I gun hunt a little but to me deer hunting is all about the bow. Seeing any ducks on Taylorsville?

the refuge down at ballard is covered up with ducks (not that it matters cause you cant hunt the good holes right by the road) but there was everything widgeons, greenheads, teals, geese or all sorts even though not so many snows, gadwalls, and all the coots you could shake a stick at :lol:

I hunt on 43 going to bagdad. I agree with the gun hunting comment one week would be plenty. Gun season is right when rut begins, this would be the best bow season.

I saw about 200 snows today flying over UofL's campus headed south, never have seen snows before in this state.

They decided to take I-65 south instead of the Ohio.

They say that the females recognize things to guide them down the flyway and back home, like pond, lakes, sloughs and land markes.

I think they don't trust the male because he will not stop and ask for directions and plus we only have one thing on are mind anyway. RIGHT!!!!! After all it is mating season

haha! I have seen a few birds on cedar creek, but not enough to justify the 1 hour drive. I do quite a bit of hunting in shelbyville.

I could really care less if you all believe me or not about what I said that ducks following landmarks. For one I heard and read that birds follow landsmarks to find their way south and back north. So you can believe me or not. Cause most of you on the kentucky chat forum shouldnt even consider yourself hunters, more like wannabes.

Wow alittle overreaction. Wannabes? Give me a break. If someone disagrees with you go cry to your mom and get off the internet.

Why dont you choke on you duckbuster06, when you really become a waterfowl hunter and spend more than 20 days a year hunting give me a call. Other than that go and suck on your moms tit.

Honestly, when did duck hunters start calling each other "wannabes"?

Agreed. I saw no reason for the hostility in the first place. Although that is a good idea about the landmarks. Maybe I should set up on the overpass rather than the slough. :rofl:
