Don't lease take a day to drive around and scout and bang on doors. If you want to pay to hunt book with a guide.

This. And in general, the farther west the better. I can't even get access to fields in the area I live (Owasso area).
Leasing a field would be a shot in the dark unless you're a guide that has a relationship with the landowner so it can be managed in accordance with hunting year in and year out.

thanks. Is it better on dry fields or ponds up there? Wondering what type of gear we should look into getting. Also what time of the year is best to plan a trip? Not familiar with weather conditions and migration.

We have great hunting for both so pick your poison. Personally I think it will be easier to find some feed fields than ponds. Second half of the season is always better for me it seems. Weather is weird. Yesterday 65 today 40 tomorrow is 25 for the high. Like the saying goes Head west young man.

So many variables go into that....one group of hunters can be shooting one hour limits, another group set up 15 minutes away could see nothing all morning. My group has had really poor January's in recent years but it has been great for others. The water situation is different each year, which influences everything the birds do once they arrive.
