Spent today driving around Doug Travis. Went past the park office, but no one was home and according to the sign on the gate the park office is closed after November 1st. (the placement of the sign on the gate kinda made me chuckle) Then I drove around hoping that I would run across a state worker out on the site, but didn't see one. So maybe some of you guys can answer some questions that I can't find answers to.
If I am not mistaken, they draw for the blind sites each year, right? Is there a stand-by drawing or do you just claim a blind if it is not occupied before a certain time? Do you have to sign in at the office or anything in order to hunt either the blinds or just walking into other areas that are open? Are there anyplaces that you can wade into? Looks like they cleared out a big area just west of some of the blinds, are they expanding?
I can see a lot of potential out there if they will pump enough water, clear enough holes and put out enough crops. From what I saw looks like very few crops on the state land but the surrounding private land had some beans that had been cut. Man, if I owned some of that private land in there I would levy it all off and put a well in.
