It really depends on where u r . Here in IN the ducks have protected resting areas so if they are hunted hard in one body of water they can move to one that cant be touched. I like to find the backwaters of a lake where there is good natural cover, but little ponds r good to, I hunt for some cattle farmers right in w/there cows by the ponds. If u have a good decoy setup u can pull those ducks to u away from the open water. However in N. Dakota its better to hunt the feilds (or maybe smaller slough if its not a roost) because the waters r not protected.

5 of 6 as you forgot sloughs, rivers, and flooded timber ... :umm: :yes: I do not hunt flooded timber as there is none in the uppermidwest like in AR, LA, and such.

Of course, after the dirty work is done, i can go back to my blind looking over the water instead of laying down in the mud or spending money on layout blinds.

Either rivers or lakes that arent very big. They are lakes by definition, but the biggest boat on them is less then 20ft, so its more like a plake (pond-lake)

Everywhere I can. I'd get bored hunting the same type of place/setup every time. From the pit blinds in the fields, to the shorelines of a lake with a nature blind, the layouts between the cornrows, the flooded timber, the farm ponds, the layout boats on a half frozen lake, etc, they're all great. I'll pass up a chance to hunt out of my regular blind, knowing I'd get a limit, in a heartbeat to try a new spot/setup. Isn't that what it's all about?

Marshes, swamps, backwater sloughs, and ponds. Anywhere a kayak or canoe will work.
