    Yeah, sucks here.

    Got up at 0315, hit the WMA parking lot at 0500. Ran into another group of hunters, who were setting up down the way from us, so that was good.

    Heard them doing some wood ducks calls, they shot one volley just after light. Saw two birds escape, don't know if they put any down or not.

    Nothing since then. Normally, this place is eat up with geese. They were here when I brought my son up for youth weekend. Gone now. Scouted the other day, and spooked up some green wings.

    I'm so tired of duck hunting in Kentucky. When I retire, we may stay in the state (for a variety of reasons), but I'm heading west. That way, I can find something with an hour drive that actually has birds.

    Purty slow at my spot... We had gadwall that did not read the rules on duck behavior as it relates to wind... Tried a long upwind shot and called it a day.

    I'm not very hopeful as to the rest if the season at the spot I hunt. But...since goose runs til mid-February, we "might" be ok.

    The dang birds left last year, and didn't come back until February. This far, theyre following the same pattern. I'm hoping we surprise them come February, and blast a few when theu come back.

    In the meantime, if anyone has a spot at a lease for two guys who love to duck hunt...let me know. I'm still looking for a place within an hour to and hour and a half from Louisville.

    Wprebeck the optimist.

    First duck of the season was a banded greenhead shot by my son.

    Looking forward to the rest of this season !!!

    I went to a public wma walked .75 ml one way... got my spot. At 6:30am a fella came rolling in on a 4 wheeler and set up 100 yards away. That just makes me mad.

    We killed several.

    No birds for me, but it still felt good to be back out.

    Took 2 guys who had never duck hunted. Not a lot of birds but didn't get skunked. I still wish for times of years ago but hope for the turnaround. Come on old man winter and work your magic. Congrats to your boy BM.

    I'd have been on the phone, trying to find the conservation officer. Isn't ATV use in a WMA prohibited, and aren't groups if hunters supposed to be 200 yards away?

    Had a pretty good opener. 2 mallard limits and a couple ringers. Geese were a no show, which was a surprise. Didn't have the blind brushed enough either. Got busted by several birds

    I wanted to call. No Service... There may be a permit for ATV use due to disability?
    yes 200yds is right. It's frustrating.
