I am new to nky and love duck hunting but not having luck finding a place to kill some teal and wood ducks

Start with the KY game and fish webpage. I would also get in contact with my local DU chapter. The Chapter chair and members should be more than willing to help out a guy in need. Just ignore all these senseless post, most of these guys are just mean.

Nice. I told him where to go. I hunt there 80% of the time. It's like anything else. You have to put in the time. BM posted up the info from KDFW so do the work and enjoy. Also this place has a bad reputation so it's best to stay away.

You know I think this is a set up. What are the chances that 2 of them show up at the same time. It's like the 2 people that showed up last year just to stir things up. Wait one of them did sort of hunt fowl. Anyway just a thought. Carry on.

I appreciate it. I am from henderson ky and they had public sloughs everywhere. Just when I thought it sucked there I see how tough it really is to find birds around. I am just getting a late start on things around here.

My buddy from back home has been trying to help me out up here to find some public sloughs. I totally get it and I hated out of towners with the best of them. I found public land so now I guess I just need to start walking hahaha. Thanks

If anyone knows where any big bucks are I would also like to kill those. Thanks in advance.
Man they are behind every bush, rock, and tree. I mean according to the magazines and the tv shows they are everywhere up here. This is Kentucky.

Not here anymore
I've been on a cruise and have to work alot this week to catch up before season. No time to scout, can anyone point me to some birds. Gps coordinates preferred.
Glad to share my spots. Got 3 that are awesome, but do require exquisite timing to hunt. The first is on Nicholasville Rd, in front of the Equine/Vet Sci building just before Farm Rd. Small pond but always has birds. Best camo here is shorts/hoodie/backpack - and use a pellet rifle.

Second spot is north of Lexington. Turn into the KY Horse Park, and turn right at the T. Small lake/big pond that always holds geese and in late winter has quite a few divers. Dress in breeches, knee boots, and a polo and just act like you own the place - you will blend right in with the horse people.

Third spot is the best of all. There is a pond in front of the Papa Johns Corporate Bldg, just east of Blankenbaker. Quite a few banded and sometimes collared birds, but you have got to Jeff Foiles em with wonder bread and pellet rifle. Hunt from a mini van and take your shots from inside with the side door slid open.

If there is anything else I can help with, just let me know!
