Duckslayer most of rookies hunting waterfowl do it on the weekends, so middle of the week should be decent for you. I retired 3 years ago so Im lucky enough that I don't have to put up with them and believe me there lots of dummies out there. I think the worse case on a week end that Ive seen is a group of these idiots blazing away one morning about 300 yards from me at a local reservoir. these guys must of burnt a case of shells. It was a slow morning for me anyway , never fired a shot and only saw about 50 ducks total, finally a buddy and I picked up and seeing one of their party walking to their truck that was next to ours, I said tearing them up, he said yep they're all over the place, said they'd have limited 2 hours ago but they weren't shooting for squat. He invited us over to see their bag, I couldn't believe my eyes, these dummies were shooting cormorants, He commented that those had to be the biggest Mergansers hed ever shot. I just said well have a good day, walked to the truck, where a game warden had just arrived , we asked how we were doing and I said not worth a piece of rat crap and he says well whos doing all the shooting, I just pointed their way, got in the truck ,drove home and wondered just how much of a fine those rookies got.
If you're there for the limit, you're there for the wrong reason
