When they call reservation #2 walk up to the board pick one gold tags that are still available, anyone will do.  Haul your decoys out to your pond, throw them in water and wait for it to get light when shot any ducks that fly within 40 yards of you.  Good luck!

Drew10 - first off, congratulations on number 2.  I mentioned on another post that Wister was my hunting spot when I was your age (started there when I was 10).  Opening day should be fun and the best advice I think came from TwoDucks - ask at the station and find out where the best water is and go for it.  We used to go north (back on the highway) and set up there.  I can't remember the unit nunbers now but we always did real well going north.  But, make sure to go where the ponds are flooded up the most.  My dad used to set me up on a dike with a home made blind - he would take burlap and attach it to 4 tall stakes and then I would surround myself with that "blind" and watch the sky.  I also remember there was a trailer set up with a man named "Mac" that would sell hot chocolate, sandwiches, arrow root blind material, shells, decoys, etc.  You will have to write back and let me know if he is still there.  He sold everything out of that trailer parked in the lot.  That was a long time ago so I would imagine he is gone now.

The best advise for you at 15 years old is to just enjoy every part of opening day.  You will get some shots but you will also have bragging rights that you got an "opening day" ressie...a hard thing to come by.  

Have a ball and be sure to let us know how you did.

Check the water on these blinds I have never seen them without during duck season, but make sure.
anyone of them will get you some good shooting.

Try (115-B-5 or 3) (115-C-1or 2) (312-C-5)(312-B-4)

Youngman enjoy your hunt and savor the excitment of drawing #2 on opener.

Be sure you let us know how you did

Mac is still there. He is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. He will always give you good advice if you ask him.          Fubar

Congrats on #2 kiddo!   With the #2 pick, the guys that run the reservations at the unit should be able to direct you to a hot spot.  Like the guys said, get one of the places that is holding water and you should be fine.

Good luck, and shoot straight!
