My only advice is to not name where you are hunting

He pretty much nailed it. Theres a lot of Gadwall right now, so you'll probably be able to shoot some birds.

Relax there Charlie. No need to beat a dead horse.

Whats funny about the lake naming:

They always ask about how good it is but never tell us how good it was.... whip

Yeah, my advice would be to make sure you hunt during the legal season...

I would say be carefull on that lake in the wind.Its no joke.Go north of the bridge on any one of the coves exept the one furthest Northwest,its a preserve(or used to be ...check it) and youll find birds.When hunting a new area sometimes pays to show up late,and then proceed to find the birds on water away from others spreads(bring binoculars).Then just make sure your away from the others and pull in and throw some kinda tarp(ollive drab is good) with some dead wood on top and if your not stikin out like sore thumb youll do okay.From there fine tune it.Ive killed hundreds of greenheads on Lewisville using that technique.Good luck.




Guns dont kill people.....bullets do.
