Mason Valley

Postby Moose14 » Thu Oct 10, 2013 8:39 pm

So I had set out this morning to scout and find the ducks out at mason. I heard they were pumping from the wells so I was curious as to where and found they were filling up a pond that already had water. After a little while I realized that it wasn't about trying to find the ducks...I was just trying to find water! Looks like they were filling up a pond that already had water but not any new ponds. I've hunted the opener at mason for a long time and have always seen enough water to handle everyone hunting the opener. What I saw today was a little scary. If just a fraction of the guys that hunt Stillwater go to mason it's going to be interesting. If you want any other details drop a PM.

Might be a good year to renew my love-hate relationship with chukar & quail.

Sounds like a bad situation in nv this year.

Hello,
I live in Southern Nevada and am wondering what the water situation is like in Mason Valley. Has it improved and have they begun adding water. Looking to come up and don't want to waste my money or gas or time if there is no water. I have a buddy who has been up there before when there was water. He had good hunts. Just wondering if anyone could update this post and give the current status. I'm not looking for the sweet spots, or asking anyone where to hunt or give up any guarded secrets, I know I will have to scout and gather my own information as to where I will believe the so called X SPOT will be. I just want to know if there is water up there.
Thanks for any updated info anyone could provide.
Happy Hunting,

I think the water is still the same as opener. It didn't seem like there was any more water there last weekend then the opener

They've been pumping water. Only thing is they pump into one pond, and when that fills it goes to the next and the next. Takes a long time considering most ponds are bone dry when they usually have water year around. Scout it out and you could find a good little honey hole with 3-6" of fresh water.
