    Boy this weather through next weekend looks great... Not... Doubt first weekend back open I'd to great... Still need a lot of water
  2. People that have water are probably going to hammer them the first couple days...... AGFC's duck report is correct that the ducks are here in a big way.

    I don't see where the predicted number of ducks comes from. There are ducks not near the predictions but the few I have seen are held up on private property doesn't look good on alot of public land. There is some areas with birds but you gotta love those land locked sections of wma's.

    Need water and cold fronts.
  7. They get in a plane, fly around.... and look at all the ducks sitting on pumped up fields in Arkansas Co that nobody here can apparently see because they all live in town.

    I'm no fool quack, I know the process. Doesn't change the fact that I don't believe there is that many predicted. I put in alot of miles and time scouting like I do every year and so far I haven't seen enough to be pleased
  9. Don't go to the AGFC moist soil units....... just go look on mulberry, long bell, and the dump road. They are there... or were last week anyway.

    I have seen a ton this year personally, but yall are right about pumped up areas. Alot I have seen are just swarmed with em, but thats where they are staying.

    This warm wx has got me wanting to get out and set some limb lines and do some cat fishing, to hell with the ducks.
  13. We have fields on Longbell road and yea we hammered them HARD the first split, I just cant imagine them still being there come Thursday, but we'll see! :up:
  14. All my info is second hand but the word was thousands of ducks.... and more piling in last week.

    Very few ducks where I have looked in SW AR. Still quite a few black bellied whistling ducks around. They should have been gone at least a month before season. At least the crappie are biting.
