    If you want to shoot ducks go to Ar-Kansas, there are no ducks in Oklahoma.

    arkansas has roughly 700,000 mallards harvested every year and 1.5 million ducks. no one comes close to the mallard harvest but it does look like california has taken a dip they are roughly tied with us for second in total ducks. Louisiana still has the lead.

    we are just a little more selective in our duck shooting
    I would be deadbroke if I tried to hunt 100 days, best I could do is 45 out of 60 in 2005. Selective is not shooting spoons,mergansers,and black jacks down here. By the time they get to us, they have seen and heard it all and some just give up.

    For reals! that is twice as many as I killed last year. No ducks here either. The one I shot was a sponnie headed for Missouri. Spoonies are easily confused

    Thanks to all for posting data. As a savvy hunter, I have learned not to freely give info. Years of scouting teaches a guy sompin---Loose lips sink ships. The article will give general info. for those new to the sport.

    BTW-- will be hunting this weekend somewhere in California.

    Take care, and thanks for the links.

    There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.
