As if you did not already know...

Postby DuckMendenhall » Mon Nov 04, 2013 10:46 am

I missed opener this wknd to spend time with the family since travelling 3 month old twins is not a good idea. We decided to get it done and over with before the Holiday season.

Onto the good news, or it could be bad...it depends on the way you look at it.

Navasota River was crazy full. Northbound on Hwy 6 btwn Hearne and Marlin...all the small creeks are flooded out...in particular just south of Marlin, water as far as the eye could see. Saw some birds on small farm ponds on 35 North of Waco. Coming back we went 287 to 45, birds are stacking up in their regular places on 287. As for Richland goes, the water was just under the bridge on 45. I have never seen as much water in many years as we saw this wknd. Forecast models are stating we can get some more this week and next ahead of some fronts.

Do your homework, there is plenty of huntable water for practically everyone. Be careful out there.

The Navasota hasn't been considered navigable / public for years... I think they overturned that ruling in like 2003. I wouldn't want to get caught hunting any flooded acreage off of that river!!
Make em hate it!!

I wouldn't want to get caught hunting flooding acreage off any river personally.

I hear ya!! But you have zero defense of the "gray area boundary" if you have no right to be on the river to begin with...
