Default Duck potato?

Seems some deer hunters know this plant well, many others have never heard of it. I've read that deer will walk through standing beans to get to it. It grows near still water and puts off a tuber about the size of a golf ball, sometimes smaller and larger. It grows from canada to Mexico, but I've not been able to confirm it near met. It has many other names, such as arrowhead, wapato, swan and goose potato, scientific name "sagittaria." The native Americans used it extensively, and some people cultivate it.

Anyone got any experience with it?
