Look up Lake George , about 1 hour south of you . If you have no boat , you can hunt from the bank . You will of course need waders , you can wade pretty far out from the bank with a lot of natural cover out in the lake . Get some decoys , use only coots and ringers , maybe 6 coots and 2 to 3 ringers (no Mallards) . Don't use a call . Good luck soldier !
Oh , there is gators
