Have waterfowl hunted for over 50 years, mostly public hunting less than two miles from the house. With the grace of God & hard work, I acquired 18 acres with a 4 acre pond about 15 years ago. In addition, I have personally built a 5 acre wetland about 250 yds out my back door. If thats not enough, I help manage a 120 acre WRP project about 75 miles from home. Between hunting season & planting season, I find a few days to work.
