This wishbone shaped lake has its dam facing the Northeast. The northern arm is a bit more narrow, but both arms are generally fairly shallow with most of the water less than 4 feet. There is a duck blind at the Northeast corner of the lake, near the North end of the dam.

Birds tend to prefer to land either in front of the blind (near the North corner of the dam), or in the Northern arm of the lake.

Expect a mixed bag on this lake, with Green-Winged Teal, Gadwall, and Ringnecks being the most common species.

There are homes about 300 yards above the lake, so please be respectful when entering the property in the wee hours of the morning and dim your headlights.

Good hunt at Kickapoo this morning. Set-up next to little cut left of dam in a layout blind.  Mixed bag of teal early then gadwall and finished up with a beautiful hooded merganser.  Steady 2-3 bird groups that worked decoys well.
