yeah ducks do land in fields in kansas ... around here i most hunt corn because it is easyest to hind in and is productive... but if i see bean and weat fields being use i hunt them other than those 3 though i have hunted other only a few times... as for to bring them in if you have a spread of gesse with a few ducks fullbodys aroudn the edges you will bring in every duck within sight. i have had 5 doz. gesse deks out and no ducks and have green heads so close that when i shot one it hit my hunting buddy (laying 5 yards to the side of me) in the head and about knocked him out. when i only have gesse deks out i just try to get there attention with a duck call and as soon as they see the spred and start looking it over go to a gosse call... if they start to angle away get back on the duck...

works for all of my hunting buddies and me

Basically any of the "plains" states/provinces are the same. Wide open country and fields compared to east of the MS river. You can hunt them the same as field hunting geese. Lay out blinds work best from my experience. And having decoys and a bunch of them especially in late season is a must IMO. Scouting is the key, find a field where they are feeding, secure permission and have a great shoot.

Generally they prefer corn, especially when cold out as it is high octane energy food for them. In Canada and northern US barley is preferred of the small grains - it is easier to digest - especially the young birds.

Get all your dekes out the more the better this is one situation I would recomend putting out everything you got plus borrow some more :smile: I like to find a feild where the ducks are flying past or already going to,scout, scout, scout. If you can find a place where two feilds come togather say a bean feild and a corn feild (not really hard to find in Ne and Ks.) thats where I would set up because the corn is cut higher from the ground than beans so you can build or set up your hide in the corn on the edge of the beans. The reason I do this is because the ducks and geese will see your dekes from the air easier in the bean feild than in the corn. I set up all the FB and BF dekes I can get my hands on in the beans and set up all my water dekes shells and so forth in the corn. The birds will see all the dekes from up high but when they get low they'll be eyeballin the dekes in the beanfeild alot closer the the ones in the corn. Then all you gotta do is sit up and start hammerin GOOD LUCK!!
P.S. It's alot of work settin up all them decoys so make it a big shoot and take your friends so they can carry dekes for you hahaha.

I would rather shoot ducks out of fields than over water. They seem to decoy way easier. Have shot them out of corn, beans and milo. We set up our goose spread as usual and will put ducks decoys and robos at the front of the spread upwind of the geese. Need a remote on the robo as it seems to flair geese but the ducks will eat it up. Like somebody said before, real close shots (10 yds or less) and be ready as it seems they will just dump in and not circle. Most the time we will just cluck on the goose calls and rarely use a duck call. Might have to try both to see what they want.

It seems like the best field hunting would be the fields full of geese I drive by while in-town Wichita shopping... :pissed: :thumbsdown: :laughing:
