Duck, Duck, Goose!

r adams outdoors1 300KENTUCKY (1/15/14) - Duck and goose hunting in western Kentucky is at times good, and at times it's very tough.

As the weather plays a huge role in how it affects the migration of the birds, to get a lot of new birds into our section of the state of Kentucky, the snowy and cold weather has to be in play for our northern bordering states such as Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri and other states that need a lot of snow cover to push migratory birds south.

As of Jan. 13, the Henderson Sloughs WMA Waterfowl Refuge Area has reported more birds at the location in almost 20 years.

Birds will follow the river system as they migrate south. For the next couple weeks as Kentucky's duck and goose season comes to a close, the hunting should pick up with the reports of new birds in our area.

I hunted this past weekend with Timbo Storms of Cypress Creek Taxidermy on his 10-acre lake, which is located near the Cypress Creek Sloughs Creek area located near South Carrollton.

We have seen hundreds of “new geese” flying in early on Monday and Tuesday mornings. The hunting should get a little better on select days in the Muhlenberg and Hopkins County areas.

I prefer to hunt the day of a cold front passing through as as the front passes.

Mixed bags of species of ducks have been reported such as mallards, gadwalls, canvasbacks, redheads and several types of divers.

Geese are reported to be as fair to good.

Good luck to all water fowlers across the western Kentucky areas and be careful out there as always. May the birds work to your calls like we like them to — right above our decoys!

Until next time, I'll see ya' on the water or in the woods.
