Waterfowl Season 2022-2023

Recommended Posts

Kicked off the season of hate this weekend with teal in Kansas and Missouri. Birds are thin but they're about if you can find the water. We shot 22 in two days, which I consider a great start. Water is scarce right now, so scouting is key. My buddy walked 13 miles before the season in one day and I totaled 10.5 in two weekends. You have to put the leg work in to be successful. We were the only parties to shoot both mornings in the marsh. If you don't want to work for it, you aren't going to shoot birds this time of year.

Figured I'd start the thread for the season..going on three years now. Everyone feel free to post your successes, failures, and overall experiences for this, the greatest time of year!

@BilletHead did you and Mrs. Billethead get out for the opener?

Water will be on in a couple weeks.

 

Nice! What area of the state? If you have water, you'll be in business.

Hunted Sunday in Kansas and my buddies hunted in MO. I saw two teal all morning. We had some big storms come through Saturday night so I supposed that sent 'em southward. Guys in MO saw 50-60 teal but they were all landing on the private marsh. 

This 30 degree drop in temperature Wednesday night should make for a nice end of the early teal season, as those remaining birds in the Dakotas should head on down. I'll be out Thursday-Sunday mornings trying to swat them out of the air.

Anybody going this weekend?  Bird count looks bad...and the thought of no water has me looking for excuses but we might try the farm.  I’ll probably just save my money tho, so we can hopefully go later.  Had a meeting at work today and was told $6 a gallon diesel is coming...gas will be above $4 soon.

        Hey Kendall,

   We have not decided yet. Have that pond in the Horton bottoms we could try but it's nothing but a mud hole. Last time we did the opener, and it was this low hunting was bad. It seems to be our only middle zone opener option.
