10,000 lakes, and 100,00 weekend warriors. There is water where a guy can hunt alone, but it doesn't mean that the ducks haven't seen every spread in MN already. We still kill 'em, just not as fast as they do on the bay. Those things out there are like downes syndrome ducks. I wouldn't stand in line for three hours in hope of getting my number drawn out of a hat to stand 100 yards from the next guy with two roboducks if my life depended on it. But...I wouldn't hunt puddle ducks on purpose either. If I wanted to shoot puddle ducks in Cali I'd probably just hit Mandeville Island. Not my cup o' tea.
