i have some thoughts of my own for you. The first weekend of August, you go over to the fairgrounds for the blind drawings. There are about 40 blinds on Woods and there were 400+ people there last year for the drawing. Luckily we got drawn for two blinds. #38 and #20. We were there almost every weekend during the early part of the season. The birds just aren't there. There is no food or good cover for them. On opening day we killed 1 gadwall. On Sunday after that we killed a drake wood duck. Later all we killed was a banded goose. The blinds are so close together, whenever any birds can be seen, even if they are waaaaaay up there, everybody and their brother is doing a hail call. If you just sit back and don't call, it usually works best, and you get a good chuckle from listening to the other guys. We have hunted there the past 3 years, but won't be back anymore. It just isn't that good when we can drive 1 hour to AL and have tons more birds, as well as a wide variety of species.
