Marshwacker, we have the same problem with bills trust in that, we go out early in the year when no other divers are really around but bills, setting up a layout with 2 guys and it takes us less time to shoot our birds and swap each other out than it does to set the rig out or pick it up.But yes 870 and I would be glad to help out.But why would you want to go shoot park ducks :laughing:

I could go sit on shore and throw out a few dekes or a big spread, but on your back is where it's at, I prefer to be miles from all the idiots and out on the big water, much more enjoyable

ISD, I will explain it to ya one more time. When we hunt park ducks of coarse we use park benches as blinds, you want to blend in don’t ya. We tried layouts in those man made lakes, but that didn’t work, trust me. Keep this in mind leave the guns to home, it attracts WAY to much attention, baseball bats work just fine. :cool:

I know on Lake Sam Rayburn where I hunt I didn't see any at all. But I only got to hunt a week out of the season due to being deployed to Afghanistan.
