SI res., worth it?

Postby QH's Paw » Fri Jan 18, 2013 5:38 pm

So, as of getting off work this morning, I have the rest of the season off. I have a res for Monday but, after looking at the numbers, well, is it really worth it? The unit I have res for pretty much need to sleep in line to get one of the better blinds and that would mean it might affect my Sunday hunt too.
What do you guys think, is it really worth the bother to hunt SI in the last week? :huh:

I think you have an easier decision. Anytime after middle December, I wouldn't hunt mudhen. It's best in the first 3 weeks of the season, historically.
For me, it isn't just that people aren't getting birds out there. When I go out and look around hunt days and non hunt days, I just don't see the numbers there would usually be there.
I haven't had one day I've seen the kind of teal you usually see there.
Maybe I should take an afternoon after hunting the river and go to the eastside station and see what they say is on the island.
