I am hunting in and around ofallon/lebanon/mascoutah, and I have heard many of the old timers say the ducks in the area are no good because they like to go sit in the sewage treatment lagoon on the backroads.... The old timers usually arent wrong, but I have to believe my first year shooting ducks isnt gonna be ruined by sewage... that would really be depressing. Anyone have any info/advice?

some are more migratory than others. you could shoot locally raised birds too.
typically, because food particles pass so quickly through birds, bad stuff doesn't accumulate in their tissue. guys kill golf course geese, and I'd be more afraid of those pesticides than a little turd or two
