It's tough to say what would be better, field or water, at this time. Everything depends on what types of crops are in that area and also the water conditions. You would probably be best off going west of Hwy. 83 for pheasants. Another thing, you don't need to drag your boat up here if you don't want to. Sit on the shore of a small slough, put out a dozen dekes and a robo, and watch the dogs have a blast!! Field hunting doesn't require dozens of shell or full body dekes. To get started 2-3 dozen shells will do just fine along with some motion(flagging) and decent calling. Any other questions, just let me know.
P.S. where are you from??
