Default Favorite WMA and Why?

Hey Everyone, I am pretty new to the forum (posting anyways, been stalking for a while With the season quickly approaching, I wanted to see what peoples favorite WMA is and why? Not looking to steal spots, just like to hear others opinions and why they like a certain area.

For the 10 years I have been chasing waterfowl, have mostly hunted Farmington and the Snake River in Idaho. Farmington because up until this year I have been a foot soldier and in highschool we discover a sweet spot we always hunt. Kill mostly mallards, teal and pintail and thats the way I like it. Snake River, late season we only kill mallards and geese.

Look forward to others thoughts...

Mr. Rogers

My favorite WMA is where the ducks are. Do I need to answer the why?

Usually I start the season at Ogden Bay.
After that I spend most of my time at BRBR.
I would like to become more familiar with Farmington Bay, and Salt Creek though.

Living in Hooper, Ogden bay has been and will be my go to. Having a boat this year though I plan on visiting as many as I can and try figuring some out.

It depends on the time of year. I seem to transition from one WMA to another as the season goes on. Some are better early, and some are better late.

One WMA I'm not liking lately is Harold Crane. Since the water level has been lowered it SUCKS going across the south pond in a boat. And that is some of the stickiest mud I've ever walked in.

I wasted an afternoon or two out there back in the day... I think timpie springs was created by a true duck hunter as a decoy marsh to keep hunters away from real, productive wma's

My favorite is Public Shooting Grounds. It's been a favorite of my Dad's for decades, so he took me to it quite often when I was a young novice hunter. I harvested my first duck there as well as my second (but very memorable) goose. I've got all kinds of great memories from that place.

Due to the drought, hunting will probably not be too good there this year. I'll be wandering all over the GSL, but I'm sure I'll head up there a time or two.
