It 's all about scouting for me. Some years one spot produces well or maybe a buddy has a new place to try. I've never had a bad day at Strawberry or the Public Shooting Grounds and most likely end up at one of those two. Of course the crowds are getting worse. M y scouting secret is to drive the places I am considering hunting on Youth day, see what s flying and see how the young in body do, then respond accordingly. Of course I am always out checking on the local duck population.
There is no help for this kind of insanity. I'm just a duck hunter, and should not be held accountable for all my actions between October 1st and freeze-up. Gordon MacQuarrie
