Forget hunting right away, and spend the time scouting to figure out where the birds want to be. Whether it's calm bays or open lake, flexibility is key.

Find you a spot that you can see a long ways and put out the decoys and you make get lucky. If not you still have your binoculars or in my case a rifle with a big scope and look and see where the ducks are and going. At 8 or before get up and leave and ride around until you find the ducks or a good spot to hunt the the ones you saw in your binoculars.

I live down here near Okaloosa Island, just moved, and saw a grip of divers in the sound. Can you hunt just off the highway? When I say just off, I mean over 100m? It is a State Park area and I saw folks fishing out there. Just wondering because I couldn't find it in the guides whether or not hunting in this type of spot was legit or not.
