There is alot of land near Van Campen's and on opening day last year the fields north of the Inn were packed. The way we went last year we had 4 of us and 1 dog, and it seemed to work well. The dog kicked up a bunch of birds for us too. It is true you get birds flying into the southern fields from the guys pushing them, but we kicked up our fair share from the brush lining the fields and a few in the forested area right by the river. Those by the river are tricky though because you can spook them enough to fly across into PA. That happened a few times last year.
