Early in the year. They may be a few. Now. Probably none.

Why not just look at the kill reports and see if any have been shot.

Pointless. A group of honkers would not make it thought the firing line on the closed zone even if they happen to be there.
Bring your coot and Ruddie decoys. That is all that has been getting shot out there.

And the full moon and no birds in the area will help to.

Right there with you. I will be out either way. You won't know if you don't go.
