Anyone currently or have ever hunted any of these areas?

Lake Bistineau
Loggy Bayou?

If so just wondering what your thoughts on these areas are.

after the first few weekends there is hardly anyone else there but it is about 30-40 acres but there is a spot in the back of it that you cant see from the main pond that is about 1/2 acre that no one hunts in ,you will definately kill a limit on woodies there

I hunt mostly on bodcau myself. I have a friend who hunts coile pond occasionally. Depends where you're at on bodcau, the woodies are always there, mallards are a different story............

If its not in range say 45 yards max why shoot?Its only a maybe that far out and rarely ever a kill shot....prob just brake a wing ect. then you have a about a 40 % chance of not retrieveing in heavy woods/timber! Anyways I'll shoot my 2 woodducks early and stop worrying about them when the mallards start fling....and if mallards in the air I dont bother with woodies even if the big ducks are working somone elses spread!.....I shoot a rem. 870 express super mag. just because it has a great pattern and you can put it through hell and it still shoots IMO....I'm prob going to drive down and check out coile pond one day this week! in the winter is it ever to deep for chest wadders or do I need a pirouge?

are u on the lease around hunt dump? Me and a buddy usually put in a round cox's camp and go up, or put in at the 160 bridge and go down when we hunt dorcheat. usually kill only woodies though.

...it used to be alot better all down through there before they cut all the bottoms out....and before abunch of sky busters and rooster started hunting down through there ever monring and afternoon.....we've learned on our holes that you have to let them rest for atleast 3 days in between hunts on the bigger water areas and about 5 days for the small holes.... its a shame people can't figure out that you have to let an area rest some cause they are ruining for everyone.....
