Water level

Wetland West of the shop is the only wetland currently being pumped.  Our pump is down due to a lightning strike.  Water in the pumped wetland has been rapidly declining.  As of 9:30 a.m on 9/22 the only huntable water remains in the low areas of the wetland and is minimal.   

October 1 through March 31 the area can only be accessed with a special permit obtained through a drawing. The application and drawing will take place online only in 2016. Look for "Special Hunts" on our home page under "HUNTING".

Hunting conditions Very few ducks using the area at this time.
