Even if there are other hunters around im still going to have a good time and hopefully knock a duck down in front of my dog.... then watch her retrieve her first duck. Even if most of the WMAs are dried up there is still plenty of lakes that offer good hunting if the work is put in.
98% of mine are on public. Problem is most lakes are down 3.5-4'. I've got 100-150 yards of mudflat to deal with. Still devising a plan, but I've put in over 20 miles on foot so far this year scoping things out. Hell, there are towns out near the bottoms that are almost to the point of rationing water because the wells are getting so low.
