Reds and Cans like big water or lots of ponds. Down in Mississippi we shoot them over catfish ponds or on the river. Also in big reservoirs. Not tons of them but a few scattered around. Pintail seem to like fields.

It is funny how small variance can change which birds are prevalent. In Shreveport we shot our weight in Widgeon. Moved 200 miles to mississippi and hunted in similar environs and suddenly the widgeon became a rarity.

Lake St. Clair. Shooting divers on the big water separates the men from the boys.
