Duck hunting at Ashurst

I noticed an Ebird post from Ashurst Lake today that mentioned duck hunters. Ashurst Lake is closed to all waterfowl hunting. The AZ Game and Fish violation reporting number is 1 (800) 352-0700. Past experience suggests that whoever answers the phone at the Game and Fish office may not know that Ashurst is closed to waterfowl hunting but it is on the last page of the 2019-2020 regulations which can be found here: https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/azgfd-portal-wordpress-pantheon/wp-content/uploads/archive/2019-20-Waterfowl-and-Snipe-Regs.pdf

There were several decoys among the hundreds of ducks, grebes and coots on the south shore on Friday. I doubt hunters are aware of this restriction, I've seen them actually shooting a couple times.
