Keep it Quiet For Public Land Duck Hunting

So you've done your scouting and found a hidden honeyhole crawling with ducks. It's tempting to call three or four of your buddies for a barn burner shoot, but it's a sure way to cut future public land duck hunting in that area short.

Multiple shooting volleys with four or five guns attract the attention of other hunters - and are likely to run ducks out of the area, too.

A better option is to hunt alone or with one close buddy. Get in, shoot your limit and get out so the ducks can rest. You can keep a spot to yourself and prospects for future hunts will be much better.
