^X2, the lady at the Llano check station (I always want to call her Debbie, but I think its Betty, correct me if I'm wrong) is BY FAR the most helpful person I have met since starting to hunt refuges. You may have already said this but what #'s did you pull? That doesn't necessarily make a monumental difference at Gray Lodge, but as far as Llano goes, its a pretty tough grind out there if you don't get one of the "good" spots. If you end up at the Lodge, be very sure to consult the water map, that will be your best friend this early in the season. I've hunted Llano a few times, and Gray Lodge tends to be my "if all else fails" spot. PM me if you have any more questions, I won't give you any x's, but I'm sure I could point you in the right direction if you are really lost.
