    I have set up, late season north of this spot at a place locals call the cow banks.
    Had a couple old timers come out fishing in back of me. Evert time I started working some birds they would start up the jiffy auger and start drilling more holes!!! I was kinda miffed

I parked at the labeled boat launch you can see marked next to the blue binocular symbol and the sand bar state park. These is a line of buoys in the water that marks the separation refuge area and open hunting area. This line is clearly visible with binoculars from the viewing area. I had to stop and take a photo.

    So this is the WMA state map

    This is the photo I took
    How many duck blinds can you count?

    and in this one I circled the duck blinds. I got 11 all stacked on top of one another and all visible from the main road.

    Simple, build 10 blinds in that small area, put automatic lights in each of them so they turn on opening day morning at 3AM. Then go into the one I want and let the veritable plethora of blinds keep the meek away.
    You jest, but I have actually done something similar. My buddies and I found a honey hole beaver pond on public land that was at the end of a cove on public land where folks were known to roar in in boats just before shooting time and set up right on top of you. So we got there via land at about 3 am and hung lights up in the trees all down the cove. Then we sat down and cooked breakfast and hung out until shooting time. It was fun to watch the boats come into the cove and decide to go somewhere else.

    Had two people come over the backside(there was a beach on that side) of a jetty in Maine while we were seaduck hunting and ask if we had seen any seals. There were all decked out with their bino's hanging from there necks. I wanted so bad to say "yeah we saw a few but when we shot the little one the others all took off"

    Ken, I can't believe how you publicly advertised and gave up someone's secret honey hole.

    That's how you get rid of all the others. Keep posting how many hunters there are and how there are no ducks...
