Potholes is a big area. Best to hook up with someone who knows it...from this board?

The biggest guide service at Potholes is the Mar-Don resort. They run a "duck taxi" and will drop you off at a blind for a hunt, picking you up afterwards. This is an option if your time is limited. You can google them and find their website.

not somewhere i would run in the dark unless u go there a lot. water levels, underwater structure, just not a good place unless you are very familiar, especially in the dark. hook up with mar-don or a local
"Dont land over there!"
So what time are they suppose to show up?

JMike,

You are also a member of The Refuge Forums, are you not? Swing over to the Washington Forum there and ask the question. There are some good guys on that board that might help you out.

JMike, its not that hard to find your way around but do it in the daylight and with someone that has done it before if you can. I will be over there 3-4 times but cant help with the exact times I wil be there to have you follow us in. Its a well known place and you will not be alone while hunting anyplace on the reservior but good luck.
