goose egg for me (get it, its a pun).......

well just maybe getting a whole bunch of nothing is better than pulling a great rezzi only to have it end up useless due to closures.....

Nothing. Not even Grizzly, and I have gotten a rezzie there for opening day for 5 years in a row.

Oh well.

Nothin for me, not even a gray lodge. Although if federal refuges are still closed for opener gray lodge will be 10 times a bigger sh*t show than normal, so maybe its a good thing I didn't draw for opening day.

How will this have an effect? They will still only let on the same amount of people...

The opening weekend will be normal. The rest of the season will be a crap show. It's going to make hunting in the sink a pain in the ass until they open the other federal ones up.

I call that place the Disneyland of waterfowl. Love the big electric sign that says yuppies the X is here.
Looks like I will be spending more time at the club this year.

Numero 11 at yolo! Too bad I know close to nothing about this refuge, only hunted it once or twice. Still excited though! :biggrin:

We're in the same boat. Never hunted there. Any info would be much appreciated. Got plenty of info about a lot of other refuges.....

Of course, I draw top 5 at Merced and it will be closed. Struck out at every other place. This sucks!!!!! Guess I'll be driving the canals on the quad looking for ducks.

Exactly. If you don't have a number lower then the amount of 3 person blinds I wouldn't bring 3 people
