Thanks for the welcome guys. i live in the middle of phoenix, near the 51. I scouted a couple of places so far, none had more ducks or geese than any of the golf courses in town. It hard to drive around the city and see more ducks next to the sidewalk than in the field.
I looked at lake pleasant, nothing really there, but it is a big lake.
Gunna try Roosevelt once the lakes up north freeze, i have a location in mind..(thanks google earth!!)
