Just because they hunt a difernt way then you dosn't make you right! I have never hunted on the river but have hunted the fields around it sinse I was a little kid. If someone pushes the birds of a bar and I don't get as many it's my fault for hunting where that can happen! The river is huge and all the birds will do is head for Washburn or Bismarck. As I see it you have two options get a boat or get used to it!
