Yeah, except we hunted salmon creek on an incoming tide - cant really hunt that unless you have a layout blind - no other way to conceal yourself...

Salmon creek, like right next to GCI - Like I said its only huntable if you have some sort of layout blind - even then you have to have a really large, convincing spread, and some good calling - Otherwise they flare early..

Hey, its legal - As long as your on the wetlands all you have to be is off of the paved surface to shoot.

Problem with hunting the rocks is you dont get as much action - the birds like to sit out on that mud, and once tide is up to the rocks and really huntable from there the birds will find somewhere else to sit - Like I said Pat - Invest in a layout blind, its really worth its weight in gold...

I can carry my decoys in my layout - you just put them inside, then fold it up.
