I may be wrong, but I get the feeling that when it comes to the average duck hunter, a vast majority of their hunting revolves around Game Lands. That is simply nuts.

However, private land can be found on a budget. If I (a broke college student myself) can find good private land, anyone can. It takes time, it takes work, and it takes persistence. Politeness, good deeds, honesty, and yes sometimes some money are going to be a requirement if you want to find long term private land hunting opportunities. I've got access to three private swamps that I try to hunt only a handful of times each year. I use them primarily for opening days, warm weather days, etc where the hunting on public land would be unproductive.
Oh and by the way, I got to my spot right at legal and had good shooting on Saturday (public land) until the sun came out and the wind died.
I have a feeling if that twisted pile of hot neoprene actually shot a limit, there would have been hero shots posted long before whatever that is made it to the internet.
