In Kansas, there are two segments of duck season, the second segment lasts 9 days and occurs in late January. These nine days are like the grand finale to an amazing fireworks show. Approaching a 400 duck season, the show above the blind has been spectacular. The last few days of the season have provided some amazing memories. Having the opportunity to call ducks & geese with my son, Former KS Governor Hayden, Wichita Eagle Outdoor Reporter Micheal Pearce and all of my other good friends has been a cap stone to a near perfect season.
Not all is good, I already feel some type of low level depression setting-in...college football is over, there is only one NFL game left, deer season is closed and by the end of the month: turkey, duck and upland seasons will also be closed. All good things must come to an end, we have been hunting hard for the past 145 days and the 2011/12 season will be one to remember! Keeping me sane is the anticipation of a few early spring snow goose hunts, spring turkey season and catching some fish...not to mention it's only 213 days until we get to do it all again!
