So, I did it went against my instincts and tried out a new area, I drove up to Farmington on the south entrance and hiked around for about three hours. Let me just say I had a map and everything and I have never been so confused in an area to hunt ducks in my life, I would walk for awhile BAM private, turn around walk in a different direction BAM buffer zone. So I know that some people will say, "you didn't study the map very well" and all that but other than the maze of confusion in walking around the dikes there were hardly any birds outside this huge buffer zone. I would like to find a place that I could walk into when a boat is not available but I'm starting to think Farmington is not it (at least the south side)
I hope you guys have a better experience than I did at Farmington (didn't even take the shotty off safe)
I know it's been a long day off nothing and walking when I start looking at coots the way I was.
Hunting isn't just something I do, It's a part of who I am.
