Sac has a website with hunt results for each hunt date. They have blind averages for last year as well. Look at both to determine what shoots well this time of year. There are always several hot blinds. A 13 on wednesday will probably be an 8 or 9 with no shows. Hard telling this wednesday with the holiday. YOu can take up to 4 on a sac reservation. Good luck.
Greay lodge is huge. There are no secrets here and the good spots are usually pretty crowded. Lots 1 and 2 shoot well. Head west toward the line. I prefer lot 13(go west) or 7(go North). They process 20 at a time so a 5 may be a 20 unles your at the front when the start processing. You can take 2 on a GL ressi.

Got blind #16 seen a lot of birds. After about 1030 the westher moved out and we had blue skys and the ducks were high. 4 of us out there, its was one guys first duck hunt. Ended up with 7 birds total 2 spoonies 2 wigeon a teal a bufflehead and a snow. The rookie dumped the snow now hes hooked. Wardens at the check station said the average do far was about 2 birds a hunter. Not a bad day but not great. But a day in the blind beats work anyday
