Some things about waterfowling just make me laugh. I think I've walked through more burdocks this year setting up and jump shooting than any other time in my life. Have you ever considered the link between ducks and burdocks? I'm convinced that burdocks + water = fowl. I've been tempted a few times on here when people ask for duck locations to simply respond- "just look for the area of the pond that contains the most burdocks- and set up right directly in front of them." :lol3:
