Forget the Refuge. They charge $5 to hunt in assigned blinds. I have about 4 places on the river that outperform the refuges by a lot. If you ever want to hunt out there let me know. In fact I am going opening day over there to a great spot on an island that nearly no one hunts. I only seen 1 other hunting group there all last season.

Oops forgot to add that part. Yeah I got a black lab mix from the pound as a pup and he is awesome at retrieving. Never trained him for the finite stuff like whistles or marking or holding. Gun goes off and so does the dog but he wont miss a bird. His name is Jake if you havnt figured that out yet.

This is the first year I have had a boat to use. Its nowhere close to being ready so I will probably use it for transportation only and there is plenty of brush to hide in. The ride to the island is very short and no current. Have to keep it to that so I dont give it away to wandering eyes. Forgot about deer season. I usually bow hunt but will be rifle hunting this year. If I tag out I will hunt Sunday and Monday. PM me for more scoop.
