With the refuges having full time Biologist and habitat managers , they should get all the Fed water they need for
our local and migrating waterfowl as the farming in the surrounding areas does help feed the birds ! Most small Clubs
with what little water they'll get this year won't provide much of anything , but use up water for a couple weeks of hunting ,
whereas the refuges could support a lot more public hunters . If the El Nino doesn't materialize like we hope it will , more
than Duck Clubs will be in a world of hurt as the Pacific Flyway could be damaged for a long long time , from poor water
I know it would be hard for you to see living so far , South ? and leave the styrofoam home , the refuges don't use it
so why would you ?
