I thought that it was Wednesday and Sunday that it is off limits, it is actually Wednesday and Saturday.
I should have known, as I approached hunters leaving the wildlife area in their lifted trucks drove by as fast they could, spraying dust and gravel all over, exhibiting their normal alpha, troglodyte, inconsiderate, boorish behavior.
I decided to play dumb and sneak in anyway but the birds were skittish and not to be seen, not that I blame them any on account of the company.
I tried to go to the Walker Ponds but they were closed too so I called it a day and went home. My bad.
