The DNR has a "progress report"of how successful each blind is. I've never had a problem getting a water blind, it seems to be the land blinds that everyone wants. My dad said he's never been skunked on the blind he used, but that was years ago and I got skunked at "his" blind.
Some wma ponds are deep, some are shallow, some are "shallow" with no bottom. I lost decoys because I thought I could walk a whole pond once out there. You won't be able to just walk the dnr blinds. The canoe would get you pretty much everywhere including the deep ponds on wmas but you have to promise me if you use it for the DNR blinds that you pay attention to the weather because if the wind whips along the lake, the waves can get pretty decent sized quick and the productive blinds are down towards the far end usually (for ducks).
This is all assuming the little water will still be open tho. If it does get locked up, the boat on the river/lakes might be phenomenal. Who knows (if I did, I'd capitalize on that and be rich!).
It may take some work to find fields that aren't leased, but that's not to say a you can't find fields to hunt.
Good luck! And if I'm way off on any if this, someone please speak up.

Sometimes I think...
'Do I really want a beer?'
Then I remember there's a supervolcano under Yellowstone that is 40,000 years overdue, and when it erupts, it could potentially cover most of North America... and I'm like,
F YEAH I WANT A BEER!
