Moving in the Right Direction: Units A and B

Wells Are Operational

Published on: 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.
