Honey Holes: Slackwater and Sandbars
After feeding, ducks and geese head to water for a drink and to rest. To conserve energy, waterfowl will look for slow-moving water with safe access to land. "When they're full of beans or corn, they're not going to want to fight the current," says Mike Miller, a Mossy Oak pro staffer who grew up hunting the Susquehanna River and now lives in Colorado, where he stalks waterfowl on the the Arkansas River. "They're going to find a pool or eddy to loaf in and then they're going to move to calmer water or even the shoreline to rest."
