    I have it on good authority one is hanging around the Ohio in downtown Louisville. For those who know the area, it's by the creek, downriver from the ramp.

    Of course, it probably won't be there by the time the split is over.

    You still hunt your old stomping grounds in the vill? Got a buddy I may send there if you're moved on.

    If memory serves correct, don't send a buddy to his spots. They averaged a duck per year. No man should have to sit thru that.

    I went there one time and talked for a few mins. I saw a few ducks fly by and watched 2 fly over the decoys. It cant be that bad. A different setup would help IMO also. We'll see....

    I killed a Barrow Goldeneye off a farm pond in Fayette county 3 years ago. Makes a cool mount.

    You don't see those too often. A family member is an ornithologist and said there have only been 2 sighting of one on the Mississippi flyway.

    I took it to a Fish and Wildlife biologist. He confirmed it was one. Said when going to school they used to catch them band them on the east coast. He said you got a very rare bird. It is on my wall. I knew when Dog brought it in. It wasn't a common Goldeneye. I have seen and killed them before.

    The same Biologist killed a surf scoter on Ky River last year in Henry county.

    Can you shoot ducks there? I’m assuming you’re talking beargrass creek. That’s really downtown-downtown. Lol
