This spot is exactly at the end of RR 11 in Concho Recreation area, off of CR 1929 or the Ray Stoker Jr. Highway. If you’ll look at the houses on the opposite side of the lake you’ll notice a house and a flat-roofed barn which are the last two right-most structures in this group of houses. Come down to the water at about a 45 degree angle and you’ll see the white jug. The wigeon did not stray too much to the right or the left of this jug.
