Dang greedy Texans

Postby Stogie » Thu Nov 08, 2007 1:59 pm

Its that time again for our annual payment of water to Texas out of the Pecos Watershead.

Brantley is down 5 feet, all my blinds are sitting on dry ground, and I can just barely get my boat back to the best hunting area.

The puddles in the river are running like Colorado rapids.

Looks like I will have to learn how to field hunt.

I hunted Bitter Lakes last weekend and was shocked by how low the river was. There was a decent amount of water in the oxbow lakes and marshes but the deepest holes I saw in the river were maybe 18". Heck, there's more water in the Pecos up here in the Sangres then there was down in Roswell.

Was in Taos this weekend, on Sunday when I drove past Brantley coming home I could not believe it. I cannot remember when I last saw it that empty. They were no longer releasing water but I am not sure if we sent the allotment or Brantley just went below the level you can release from.

I may be in the market for a flat boat with a mud motor.
