Moraine's Lake Arthur, generally. Straight up 79, turn right @ Butler exit. Gamelands 284 in Washington Twp., Lawrence Co. is good for the teal & mallards. Bring a boat for 284 - VERY mucky. Step foot in it - 5-10 mins. to get out. To get to 284 the easiest way - go up 79. Get off @ Grove City exit west, as though you would be going to the Outlets. Continue west on 208 go past a major intersection , past a dome - shaped building (Pottery Dome) down a dip to an intersection - Brent Road. Turn left, continue south to a large old school building on the left - Stiffy's Drilling. Go south on that road - Old Ash Rd. As you go south, to the right you'll see potholes. Just past where you can see the potholes, there's a farm. Turn right on Black Road. Go over a small bridge, slow down, approach a copse of pine trees on the right. Turn right down a crushed brick road - hope that you have good suspension - there you are.

Sorry for the delayed response.
Yes. When you pull into the parking place - it's shaped like a cul de sac - facing north you'll see trees w/ an opening @ the right. Excellent place to slide in your boat. Row out & you'll be in a pothole. Keep going to the northwest to find a little "island" of weeds that you can slide into. W/o a boat? Then go through the woods on the left and walk about 100 - 200 hundred yards following the curve of the pothole. Cross a small run off (watch the muck) & you'll see the pothole past some weeds that you can hide in. You'll see that small "island" of weeds about 50 - 75 yds in front of you. A buddy of mine & I on foot got some shooting there on Columbus Day. I got a woodie drake :smile: . Again, watch for the muck if you're on foot. If you have a dog & you're on foot, the walk through the woods would be a great payoff. If you have the whole package - dog, boat, decoys - you'll like this place. The 15th will bring some migrators here. The teal might still be in there - nice that the Game Commission gave the south zone a rest!
