Wow I just want to let you guys know that your killing my buddies and I. We're sitting at work looking at these pictures, reading your posts and flipping out. Our opener (MN) is this weekend and if I hunt hard all day I might manage a limit of resident mallards. We're heading out to the Devil Lake area on the 10-14 and like most on this site we're looking for advice. We were planning on hunting potholes, but will it be to late? Should we focus on the fields? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Keep up the good work, you make my day tolerable.
