Has anyone been out to the West side this week? I am just curious if the blinds will be accessible tomorrow.

Some are some aren't, call for the duck report and it will tell ya what hunt areas did well, you might be able to gather up some info that way. I was there hunting North Unit on Monday.

Thanks for the help guys. I will check it out tomorrow, but it looks like we'll probably end up on the East side.

I didn't even bother heading to the West side this morning. We went to the East Side and nothing has changed. There are very few birds being shot on the island. We did stop by the West side before heading home and all I can say is WOW! It looks like the check station is sitting on the bank of the columbia. There isn't any dry ground over there. They said that it was all boat access only. I am thinking that today was the last day I am going out there for this season unless a miracle occurs and we get hit with an arctic storm in the next 2 weeks. :toofunny:

I did manage to snag my chest waders on some barbed wire right before putting the dekes out and then my buddy loaded my winduk and broke the wing. What a way to end the season! :thumbsup:
