    Wear a life vest and neoprene waders which float and more importantly; insulate you even if you get wet. I would not be afraid to get on any local river when conditions are reasonable. Watch the weather report and be prepared to get wet/cold. Prepare for the worst possible scenario and get on the water early in the fall to find out what surprises the river has in store. Learn when its warm on a squirrel float hunt etc prior to duck season.

    Hook up with Wprebeck, he and his son are hardcore Louisville fowlers. I'm sure he can put you on the birds :D

    I don't see how that's any different than any other body of water though.

    It's not. I just don't like a kayak in cold weather, regardless if I'm in a cow pond or the gulf lol

    ole reds10er just couldnt keep up with the times the boat ramps just keep getting wider and the ole s10 ain't getting any longer. I've got me a school bus complete with camo paint job. Drake waterfowl stickers and an led light bar. This bad boy is about to see more air time than a skateboard at the x-games.

    I've deer/squirrel/rabbit hunted John C. Williams WMA not far south of Louisville and heard what I imagine to be duck hunters a few times. Just a pond for kayaks, though, I imagine they're mostly just wading through flooded marsh areas.

    I'm from Louisville also, just bought a Gheenoe, looking to get into duck hunting on public land. Hunted WMA's but not ducks.

    For you all talking about rivers and tributaries, am I missing something or are the rules different on the water? Are there WMA's on the Ohio ya'll are speaking of, or is any public river legal to hunt so long as you stay in the water?

    I know you said you are new to duck hunting. Study river laws and don't get an education on KYHunting. Yall make sure to stay up around Louisville and off my river. If you have to ask where, you don't need to know.

    No ducks on the rivers, stay in the corn fields.

    Would love to study the river laws but am just not sure where to find them. Any ideas on where to start? I've looked on fw.ky.gov but don't see a lot of information that isn't talking about WMA's specifically. Can Google info on river hunting laws in West Virginia and Texas, but haven't found anything for Kentucky.

    Not really hoping to hunt the Ohio, certainly nowhere near Ballard county, but would like the opportunity for Salt River or Kentucky River. I pay for my license, am a Duck Unlimited, NWTF, NRA member, etc. Really hoping no one would get mad at me for trying to shoot a duck or two to try it out.

    Have heard many people say "I've hunted rivers up and down my whole life" but just because people hunt it doesn't mean it's legal. I'd rather play it safe than be uncertain if a game warden approaches.

    If there are any leads on KY river hunting laws I'd be glad to follow them to do the proper research!

    Just hunt around someone with a slower boat than yours.
