I have been to TMP several times over the past several years. It has been historically the worst run of the duck parks; from previous managers running like their own duck club, holding fields out of draw until a buddies pick, mysterious pills getting pulled by manage buddies etc.
This season, as always there is the MAFIA, of the good ole boy crew that hovers around the counter like they own the place. That does not help the conspiracy theorists. This year, I can say I have no complaints- although it does seem some of those kids are much luckier than others, but that's luck.
As far as 1 guy pulling 4 pills, they encourage that; it speeds the process! I recall few years ago the lines were horrendous when everyone pulls their own pill. When u pick your spot, everyone goes to the counter-- it's a non-issue.
The bigger issue is the one you a 100% correct on-- DWI CHECKPOINT!!!! Numerous people reek of alcohol"
The other issue, is the fibbing that knowingly goes on in regards to harvest. Wish folks could at least be honest,
As well as know your legal shooting times!! Last 2 times I was there, parties shot 5-6 minutes after LST.
This is a good place to hunt, but the questionable previous managers ethics, thefts, and drunks make it unbearable at times.
I'll keep going there as an option, I do things the right way, I'll simply choose to mind my own business, follow e rules, and politely decline anyone wanting to combine parties.
