    There is 4 accessible ponds that are reachable with using vehicles to move location in this area. I have 36 duck, Geese - 12 bigfoot land and 4 floater geese. When we have more floaters we can call down flocks, but water level in big might be the issue again this for overnight roosting for the morning fly out. I suspect it will be a bust for eve/morn mass flights we used to get, and more fly over, call down opportunities like last year.

    How many ponds do you want decoys for?

    I have been doing some scouting with google earth, and there are ponds south of your camp and a river/creek access off Flood Rd to that pond you were talking about.

    Maybe something to explore well your gone over the week.

    There is some great wild rice ponds in this 100 acres of ponds, but not accessible unless you have snowshoes to walk over reeds to get to them. However, they provide great Woodies flyby.

    36? That is almost one bag.

    As of now the plan is to be there on the 26th and get camp setup. We can make plans as we go. Only have two objectives for this year:
    1) camp, hunt, and relax.

    2) stay out of cell coverage as much as possible.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    Hoping for a pile of rain in the three weeks leading up to the opener for waterfowl. After that cool and clear or cold and overcast...

    That’d help for sure

    I will try to be out the 27 or might have to be on the 28th. I will bring a canoe if it is necessary. I have my own tent but might just sleep in the truck.

    I didn't count but how many people are in for that weekend.

    Mark would these other ponds be accessible by ATV?

    Hey Mark
    Good to hear from you again...We spoke a bit last year.
    Hope all is well with you.

    I'm not into waterfowl ( yet ) but I wouldn't mind doing a walk through/scouting session for deer and turkey. I'm always up for a foraging lesson or two as well.

    Thanks,
    Adam.
