Alot of people do this to try to keep hunters away. There is bait in the area if that`s what you want to call it. He doesn`t dump bags of corn either. He simply feeds the ducks. I did talk to a GW when my daughter was taking her hunter saftey course. He said it was legal to hunt there. That alot of people feed ducks on the lake and it would basicaly be impossiple to consider this a baited area. As for the ducks coming to the cove, I have hunted around 250 yards away on an outcrop where you can still see the mouth of that cove. Ducks don`t always flock to it. There are days when you see alot and some days none at all. As for arriving at 4:30 to the blind, this is the normal time I arrive and I as of yet have had anyone beat me to a location. Most of the guys get to the ramp at 4:30. I`m already at my blind by then putting out decoys. I know this is a sticky situation and I don`t want to bring added attention to me or fellow duck hunters. But if you live on the lake, duck hunter are something you are going to have to deal with. I have a 100 acre field in front of my house and have to deal with dove, goose, and crow hunters. Shot rains down on my house. It`s part of living in the country. Some times your the bug and sometimes your the windshield.
