I posted this in the deer hunting section, but figured you duck hunters may have some experience with this.

My brother and I went out scouting today via the river and we found some great spots to deer hunt. The only problem is, with the water level low, we have to walk across some serious sloughs and mud flats with crazy sucking mud. This mud is the kind of stuff that almost came to the tops of my Lacrosse Burleys, and wanted to keep my boots everytime that I took a step.

Who has experience with this stuff, and what remedy (especially homemade) do you recommend to counter this issue. I thought about making some plywood "snowshoes" for this, but I was wondering if they would want to form a vaccum on top of the mud or something.

Thanks in advance,
