    Survey says,!!!!!! Calendar ducks are a real thing.

    Hunting ducks into February is not an option. That is a federal mandate. However, the state can manipulate days and splits until Jan. 31st. Honestly, would hunting into February make a difference? This past youth weekend in Ballard County, it wasn't that there were 100,000 birds and it was...

    Survey says,!!!!!! Calendar ducks are a real thing.

    Because the corn clubs aren't pumped? For years the Woodduck/teal season opened on a Wednesday. That was moved to a Saturday opener in the name of more hunter opportunity. Taking a Tuesday-Friday from the split split and adding a weekend would do the same. I'd say a vast minority of the...

    Survey says,!!!!!! Calendar ducks are a real thing.

    Can we convince the powers that be to adjust the season dates to take advantage of the migration that happens in Late October - Early November? I'm not a mallard purest and will gladly harvest MOST waterfowl that are available. I recognize the Fed puts parameters on the season, but early...

    West Ky Youth Hunts

    Great weekend of waterfowling! It never ceases to amaze me how dumb the birds get after 5 days of no pressure and how smart they get after 1!

    Electronic Federal Duck Stamp

    Well as of today, Missery or the Fed, has not sent my federal waterfowl stamp. I called KDFW and asked if I'd get ticketed. The person I spoke with said the regulations state we must physically have the signed Fed stamp in our possession. I'm not sure I agree. If I have proof of purchase in...

    I've seen poults every time I've been out in August and September at several WMAs and private land. More than I've ever seen. Taylor-Green-Casey-Adair-Boyle-Marion

    Electronic Federal Duck Stamp

    When you physically receive your stamp, do you carry it to the field?

    Electronic Federal Duck Stamp

    I procrastinated and went with the electronic stamp on the Missouri DNR App. I'll receive a physical stamp within 45 days. Do you suppose I'll get ticketed? I have proof of purchase in my name.

    Kansas Waterfowl trip

    I’m planning a trip to southeast Kansas with some friends for late December. We’re planning to hunt public and/or private walk-in. We’re going to pull a boat and take layouts. If anyone is willing to share some thoughts, ideas, or do’s/don’ts I would appreciate any and all suggestions.

    Fixes for low turkey numbers?

    This is my take: I don't believe food is a problem, most say there has been very little habitat change. Population limiting Factors typically go something like: Predation, disease, competition, weather, natural disaster. My opinion is that if we want more birds we have to control what we can...

    20-21 season thread

    I had the most miserable opening day that I have ever had. I hunted with my son, nephew, and good friend on Green River wma. I went to 1-2 acre buckbrush hole that was well off the beaten paths and main roads. Got to the place I had scouted 2-3 times plenty early and put decoys out etc. Was...
