Moving in the Right Direction: Units A and B

Oct 16, 2012

We’ve made some steps in the right direction. Stop logs are in place and water is flowing from the wells in Units A and B. Over the next few weeks we will be flooding the reconfigured pools to add some waterfowl habitat and hunting positions. At this time, we are unsure of exactly how many positions we’ll have flooded by the opener, but this development significantly improves our situation. Additionally, several inches of rain will also improve conditions across the area. In two weeks we’ll have a much better idea about the number of spots on the west side of the area and will also be assessing the water levels in Pool 1 to flood blind openings in Pool 2 on the east side of Duck Creek. Thank you for your patience and apologize for the heartburn that the early two projected hunting spots caused. Things are looking up and I am glad we’ll be able to improve the amount of hunting opportunity by November 3rd.

Great job guys! Last year was tired of hunting the timber...the A and B pools are my favorite place to hunt!:-))))

Thanks guys. Keep up the great work!!!

Thanks for the update and I really appreciate the hard work the guys at Duck Creek are doing to get this moving.

Have you ever been interested in duck hunting, but the idea of weathering the cold has kept you from taking that extra step out into the marsh?  Or perhaps you do duck hunt, but have that friend who tried it once, had leaky waders in the dead of winter, and swore he or she would never go back.  Well, it just so happens ...

It’s a shame that little Miss Muffett was too frightened to meet the spider that sat down beside her. She would have discovered that spiders are exceptional creatures.
