Teal Season 2012

Postby Dr. Quack » Wed Sep 12, 2012 6:00 pm

Hey, do any of you MRGV hunters know if La Joya and Bernardo will be flooded in time for the Teal season opener? I could not get a live person to talk to on the phone at NMDGF, but a Sevilleta NWR employee wondered if there would be any flooding at all this year because of the severity of the drought... Now that would be a bummer.

Today I hunted/walked around Bernardo, La Joya and Sevelita near the Rio Grand. No water in the ponds at all. Only water is in canals. The Rio Grand is really low. Saw teal flying up the canals at daybreak, then nothing after that. Found a few blue wings down on the river. The river is your best bet. Don't bother with the hunting areas. Good Luck. O, and I agree that there may not be enough water to flood the ponds this year since the river is really low. :sad:

It's looking like there may be little or no water this year. Speaking as one they have even been trying to cut off the farmers water early all summer. The conservancy boards only focus lately seems to be Texas, Albuquerque, and the butte. :mad:

I shot nothing but blue wing's this season. I was lucky to get water to hunt over. I have concerns about water access for this season.
