Ortonville can be great but you need to play the weather...the front taht just came thru 12-14-04 didnt seem to be enough to move anything in yet...alot of the public land/water is big....the other draw is Marsh Lake in the LQP WMA....weekends are akin to combat hunting...lots of competition...weekdays are much better
just spent the whole day in ortinville from sun up to sun down and shot at two ducks. Yep I missed em both. Kinda disappointing when you have few opportunities and miss! I was going to leave around 2 but a front came through but it didnt bring anything with it. There are some ducks in the area. I saw mainly mallards on my way to and from but they were in little ponds within city limits. Large flocks of geese but not within 2 miles of where I can hunt. Oh well I'll just have to wait for the big canadian mallards I guess.
