We are planning on heading out this Sat and heard reports of snow. In another thread I read there was already thin ice on the lake/marsh. Does the ice negatively effect the hunting. Do most people just bust it up and throw out their decoys in the broken up area? Should I break up the area I want the ducks to be aiming for as they're coming in? What about the slough headed in, does it stay open longer because of the moving water?
Any other cold weather tips or tricks are greatly appreciated.
