I would float it to find the ducks, then set up in a likely spot. There will be places the ducks want to be,but when the shooting starts during the season all bets are off. There new places will need to be learned, The only way is to be out there scouting or hunting the ducks.
There are still things worth dying for and 1 of those things is freedom.
I love Geese
Genesis 27:3 Now then, get your weapons, quiver and bow, go out in the fields and hunt some wild game for me.
