Hey guys as you can tell I'm new on here. This is my second year hunting and I had entered the lottery for goose permits and got one at Snakeden on Nov. 4th. So my question is, is it worth going there this early in the year or even at all with having a spot on the river that is producing? I'm not asking for the best blind spots just whether or not it's worth making a day out of. I found out they only allow 2 hunters per blind and I"m unversed on accessibilty to blinds as far as hauling gear. Any input would be great. Thanks!

You hunt from two man pits. Some pits are a short walk, others are a hike. The lake is the refuge and the pits surround the lake next to cut corn fields. Snakeden is near Victoria Illinois (population 300) which is out in BFE. This early in the year it is a toss up. If you have a spot producing good ducks or geese I would not go to Snakeden. There are usually geese at Snakeden but, you can shoot a duck or two. There is a 10 shell limit which keeps most guys from shooting ducks. Hope this helps. PM me if you want more info.
