Dane county has a lot of pressure.

Any place in Wisconsin has lots of pressure. We have the third highest number of waterfowl hunters in the country.

Grab some popcorn sconny is a circus. Bird to hunter ratio is very poor for us hunters. Tons of pressure with fewer birds. We don't hold birds like southern states and have hunters to boot. If I were you I would be going south west in your own state. Public hunting around here is a high competition zoo.

atleast at bong u can call and reserve a blind. if your trying to get fields for goose hunting then good luck to ya. your inbetween chicago and milwaukee which makes it that much worse. If your looking to get after some ducks or geese on the water then expect heavy pressure almost all season long.

Like everyone else said... I try not to touch any public hunting grounds, made the mistake of going to a public spot on opening day that I had scouted the last week, there were people everywhere, didn't even take a shot cus id be peppering other guys. But that's how ive found all the public places to be around south easter wisco. I wouldn't hunt bong, it gets so much pressure. just my opinion
