I may be showing my ignorance here, but I'm really struggling with this idea of a one month season and watching the birds fly away. My question is about the coast... I've read about folks going down to K-Bay to hunt sea ducks, but could one do the same thing down at Valdez or Cordova? Do you have to get out in the waves to see anything, or is it just as good to hunt in the river, and if you hunt in the river, how soon does it freeze? My boat wouldn't be much use on the ocean, but I can run around in the river if that's an option.
