to the forum!
Talking about specific spots is a general "no-no" here. We have a great group of people who visit and communicate often, but there are also hundreds who just view. Naming a spot is a sure way to have others visiting you OR bringing in new people to someone else's honey hole. We just had this happen a few months ago with a spot.
I edited your post to help you and anyone who potentially hunts those spots.
Best way to see if a spot is good is to check it and check it often. All times of the day and all times of the year (although spring can be misleading... many places have birds (especially noticed with geese, at least for me) int he spring and none in the summer/fall as they all moved on.
The best way to find out is to scout. Scout in the summer, scout right before the season, always scout. Google earth is your friend.
There are lots of places to duck hunt here, but sometimes finding a spot with a limit every time can take a lot of work.
I am more into ducks than geese (due to spots), so I am not much help there... but I was lucky to get a few last season, some with help of fellow members, and some myself. Fields are big for geese, so I would start looking at fields, especially those close to water.
