Wyoming ducks

Planning a hunt for antelope this fall in eastern Wyoming. We are planning to be there for about 10 days. The antelope hunt should take 3-4 days at most we hope, and the rest of the trip we plan to duck hunt, upland hunt, and fish.

I have found one landowner to hunt on NE of Douglas and the Platte River looks promising for ducks, but any other helpful directions would be great. Not looking for honey holes, but just somewhere to kick back, have some laughs, and kill a duck or two. Before I die, my goal is to kill a duck in every state. Might as well knock out WYoming while we are there. Laugh

Wyoming ducks

Nebraska along the platte river can be great for duck and especially geese. I rank Wyoming as just as terrible as Colorado for duck hunting. Of the inland western states I find Montana and Nebraska to be pretty good duck spots.

If you get up to northeast

If you get up to northeast Wyoming during your hunt, check out Keyhole Reservoir for duck hunting. It's a overlooked area when it comes to waterfowl. You will find most species there including canvasbacks. Wheather is generally good in October and you will run to very few other duck hunters.

will try it

Thanks for the input.  I'll have to check that place out.  I'll be camping/boating near Douglas this summer.  I'll head to Keyhole to see what's up.
