i don't get the celebration with gettin drawn for duck parks. seems people have a party for the honor to hunt their public land when told by the massah. personally, yeah you see ducks but other than that i don't get it. mound/blind shy, weary, shot at everyday whether 10 yards or 100 yards out. birds that work only to flare at distant gun shots. i guess i just don't get it. had some great hunts on public spots that weren't duck parks and never seen another hunter and didn't have to get permission from massah to do it. plus i could go every day ifn' i wanted to. is it a status thing only duck park i hunt is open and we get away from the crowd as not to deal with any problems.
