To many hunters it is perceived that lake naming is a sin. To each is own my friend. I hunt private land primarily so i don't get all caught up in it.
Spend a season hunting public and 99% probability you change your tune. I say 99%, because there are always exceptions.
But I do think Internet forum blabber mouths are not nearly as bad as good ol fashion word of mouth blabber mouths. I have seen ducks move into an area, no one there for days, then the places gets packed, it has got to be word of mouth, and multiplier effect.
