New member from Cushing area

Postby LittleJon » Wed Oct 23, 2013 10:30 am

Hello all,

I got back into hard-core waterfowling a few years back in central Kansas. Recently, work moved me to the Cushing, OK area and I am looking to find hunting buddies in that region. I still hunt Cheyenne Bottoms and the fields south of Ellinwood, KS; when I can make it back, and I always have room for at least one more in my truck. I'm an ethical hunter and know the rewards of time spent scouting before the hunt. I like to be the back-up or secondary call in the group. I can call fairly well on my own, but I've been lucky to have better callers in my group. I also have learned that many times, less is more. I've got a small Sillosock snow goose rig, 5 dz full bodied goose field and 2.5 dz goose floaters and 3 or 4 dz duck floaters to play with. Right now, I'm working on a layout boat project with a new mud motor.

I hope to be an active member of this community. :hi:

Thanks in advance,
LittleJon

Welcome. You have quite a bit of public land around you that I know nothing about. Let us know how it goes this year and drop a line if you are struggling.

I've already ordered the Wildlife Management Area Atlas, so that should be a helpful resource.

LJ,

Get plat maps of Lincoln, Payne counties (as well as others) and locate the landowners that have watershed lakes on their property. Those can be dynamite and many would be accessible after rifle season ends.

Does the number of bands claimed simply mean you have an Ebay account?

Also get Corps of Engineer maps showing their hunting land for any Corps lakes you may try.

You're in a good area. Put some miles on the truck and you should have no trouble getting some landowner permission.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

I'm heading back up to Kansas for this weekend.
I'll try to "Pied Pipper" the birds and see if they will follow me back down here.
