hey guys,
i hunted central ky from the late 80s until 2001. Elkhorn creek is great in the late season when everything else is locked up. I lanched @ the campground off of 127 (norht of Frankfort ) and usually went out to the ky river or if the creek was up enough i would set up adjacent to the fish hatchery.
If you don't mind hitting the road the Ohio river can offer some of the best duck and goose hunting you could ask for. I make my living fishing and hunting now and have hunted up and down the mississippi flyway. the mighty ohio can be as good as anyplace south of the canada border.
we would cross the river in maysville and head west to eagle creek boat luanch, once in the water head back east south east across the river to a creek point. i hunted as far back as cuold in the creek until it locked up or goose season opened.
I can't think of any place i'd rather hunt when everything locked up!
Let me know how you guys make out.

Hey duck hunter what parts of licking did you hunt? I have been talkin to a guy about it and am thinkin of goin up there opening weekend. He showed me some spots north of salt lick and said hes been jumpin tons of mallards and woodies while fishin. Unless I find another spot Ill probably end up there. This is my first season on the creeks so I dont really have any other place to go.

hey slayer

i have only looked in a few spot around the town of falmouth, and have asked some friend that live on the licking if there are seeing any ducks, i havent scouted it very hard because of the time of year, and i have been seeing some action on the ohio r. If ur around the area let me know and we could hook up,i have a boat and we could go up and down the river, its pretty shallow but we could find the birds. where ru located.

Hey slayer

That sucks starting off the year like that, I went out opening morning and did pretty good for being the first of the year. we killed 4 mallards and 1 ring neck. Must have seen 100 birds by 8 oclock. Not bad for the for the 1st hunt of the year. Im going again sunday, with this cold front the birds should really be moving.

Duck slayer,

I was down to Cedar Creek last Saturday. Nothing to show for it. If you like coots you could limit out. I did see a group of about ten mallards come in as I was heading to the dock. If I can't get on any ponds closer to the house I will be heading back down sometime soon to give it another try.

Good luck.
