it very heavily hunted. the farmer on the hill gives everyone permission no matter what. my hunting partner has hunted there with 4 party's in the field with him. the last time I hunted there there were 2 other parties there and we all had permission. if your lucky and see birds in there, there probably new birds and should hunt them the next morning.

This is Champney's hunting partner...the water is mediocre unless you've got a good snowstorm...the field are where its at and like my partner said EVERYONE GETS PERMISSION. And ,man is it frustrating.

I've not hunted there, but I've seen lots of ducks there pre-season while fishing. Sounds like they get shot out pretty quickly.

I shot my first Mallard on BP. It is a small area to hunt, as said the best area is the south end where you can try for crossing shots when the ducks travel between the eating fields and the roost, they tend not to decoy when on a food mission. The place gets shot out and not a lot of action, I did not even hunt there last year just to give it a rest. Champlain is a lot more fun, more places to hide and more room for everyone to spread out.
