Maybe it will help add some needed water to your favorite hunting spots? What do you think?

We've been getting good rain and my place is overflowing and flooded out. Last weekend what was 1' of flooded flat was nearly 4' and with these rains I can only imagine. I'll take it.

Best thing is does for me is the city closes the gates to public land to protect the roads and gives the birds a rest

My spots didn't need water- they needed food and ducks.

I am thinking it will drastically change how we have been hunting.

I will be surprised if the ponds are not full. Will have to brush the big blind and fence it...too much work. blush

I needed rain but not 3 inches of it. Hope my ponds don't overflow the levee's. Guess I will find out in the morning.

Lots of birds starting to make it to Hagerman NWR. Hopefully it won't be too much longer.

Same here.

I watched the front roll in Tuesday morning while we were hunting and wave after wave of geese and big ducks rolled through as well.
