on our farm in shelby co. as well as the Louisville part of the river we mostly shoot mallards. Our woody season is really good, and we crush the Canadas all season long. Our farm pond has seen every type of puddler you would expect to see east of the mississippi. We have been fortunate enough to see but not harvest bluebills, redheads, canvasbacks, ringnecks and even a merganser on our little 2 acre pond. This is where I spend most of my time for convenience sake. It's 20 minutes from my front door. We have an aerator that keeps our place from freezing up, so when it gets really cold we do fairly well as we are the only open water around. My Ohio River hunting is probably over unless I get an invite somewhere as I have sold my boat. The compition down here in Lou. is brutal. I got out and in the water once last year by 3:45 a.m. and someone was in my spot. That just about did it for me. 25 boats fightin over 5 or 6 prime spots, no thanks. Not to mention that I've somehow managed not to kill myself out there.....it is unbeliveably dangerous.
