Anyone been out to stillwater lately?

Postby duckmanNV » Thu Nov 01, 2012 8:28 pm

I was just wondering if anyone had been out to stillwater recently. Because of school, I wont be able to get out scouting. If anyone has reports of new birds being pushed down, I might head out this weekend. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Be careful if you have a dog. Marsh foot at stillwater and greenhead this year. "Marsh foot" sometimes isn't just an infection, it can be a necrotizing fasciitis and can kill a dog.

We were there on Sunday afternoon. Water levels are dropping, at least in North and West Nutgrass. Birds were around but not many moving. It was a bluebird day and there were only a few other hunters on the ponds. A guy needs more help when the weather is nice.

I emailed Susan, the refuge manager, and she said they're at the end of the water delivery. If they get a slug right at the end, they are going to send it to Lead and Pintail.

Would you guys recommend going to greenhead over Stillwater even if I have never been there?
