I believe there are two ways to hunt. 1)Walk as much as you can till you stumble on a bird or 2)sit tight in an area that you know holds birds and call till something happens.
You may be really limiting yourself thinking there are only 2 ways to hunt. There are several variations-
strategic move and gun, move pause and gun, trolling, circle - sit and gun, leapfrog and gun, call leave for awhile - return and gun. Flush em and call em back like in the fall can work in the spring too.
