Kansas is very weather dependent.

Kansas is one of the best states to hunt waterfowl. Like Duckbuster said, it's totally weather dependent. You should be able to find some birds in mid December. Either way it's a fun trip. Good luck

We decided to rent a blind in NE AR the last week of December. Hopefully the weather is good and cold

Did that two years ago outside of Jonesboro when we had high water everywhere. Still managed to scratch limits everyday but we really had to work for them. This year should be better.

Probably will do well in the fields for big geese! But by then all the water will likely be locked up and/or most ducks gone.

Yeah I know we will get on the geese but I am really hoping the ducks will be there.. You think that might be too late?

Late Dec can go either way. I hunt in LA and we get big pushes when ARK freezes tight. Usually bout that time.

Just to clarify I’m talking about Kansas, don’t know about Ark.

I also just moved out here this summer so I’m by no means an expert. But the friends I’ve talked to that have lived here for awhile say the freezing time is highly variable but usually first time around early December. Can be as early as around now or as late as mid December to late Dec. It may not be frozen in late December but it’s likely it will have frozen and thawed a few times before then and most birds pushed out. If that’s the case may be mostly mallards and divers and Canadas still around.

Either way I’ll still be out hunting

Another disclaimer, I’m still getting used to seeing reports of 30,000+ birds surveyed on a refuge and it being considered not a high number lol so I’ve got some learnin to do
