Flooded Habitat in Unit A

Oct 23, 2009

The conditions in Unit A look good. We've got the pumps running and are flooding the pools to get the table set for the arrival of migrant waterfowl and the season opener. The blinds are brushed, and the food looks good. The additional rain will help out, and hopefully in the next week or two a few more birds will be pushed south. For more details on the blind locations that will be available, check out the post from Monday, Sept. 14, 2009 (Waterfowl Hunting Opportunity: Early Part of Season).
