Do divers use Wind Lake, I would like a chance to shoot one, but have no idea where to go. (Guide, Mississippi River, and Lake michigan aren't options)

Buffleheads and ringnecks are what you'll see mostly in the way of divers. You won't see any substantial numbers until after the season closes however. That's not to say you won't see other types come through too, I've shot a couple redheads and bluebills, even seen a few cans. I hunt up the road a little ways and occasionally hit wind for some late season mallards.

I second that. Not much diver action. I hunt that lake quite a bit out of convenience. I'll actually be out tomorrow morning as well.

Does the lake get alot of hunting pressure?

Yes, if you go out on the weekend, I would scout a spot and come up with a couple alternatives. Not nearly as much cover as Big Muskego so your options are more limited, and the regular guys have their spots and they get there early. You're better off hunting an afternoon and finding a spot if you haven't been out there.
