    It starts on the 27th. The northern season opens the 13th.
    We may get out there on the 26th to do some scouting, but definately no earlier than that.

    Birdup - I did a little more aerial reconnaissance. Once I figure out where to go, be sure to lay claim to it. Then drag me and Maddog around in the dark and try to tumble our gyros. :sp

    Ah wait...that's an old trick. I'm sure you'll think of something new this year!:l

    My goals? Stay dry (Hi, My name is Humvee and I'm a swim-a-holic...I haven't had a swim for one season...); shoot more ducks than Birdup and Kurt; try not to shoot my dog when he won't stay in the boat; and hunt as many days as possible.

    Just when I thought I would have an entire season with no deployments they dropped one in our lap. I need to talk to someone in charge about this!

    I'll echo Maddog...more Refuge hunts/camps/happy hours. I'd help set stuff up but I have no leadership skills and zero organization.:no
