    No I don't,but you had better have very deep pockets.
    Last I heard they were up to 50 grad or so.
    If thats true or not I'm not sure.

    There is a long waiting list.From what I understand there
    are 50 members and they vote on new members.One guy doesn't like
    you and you are not let in.You also have to be a resident of Bureau
    County.

    After the azz beatings I have continued to subject myself thru these last two weeks in the southern part of the Central, I'm willing to relocate and fork over the $50k for a duck or two. Danny, you got $49K I can borrow ?

    Jim,will you take a check?

    I helped the care taker up there brush blinds a few years
    ago.He had 50 to brush.It is quit an operation.The water
    was drawn down and we used 4 wheelers and pulled small trailers
    behind them.We drove them right up to the blinds.Most of the blinds
    are small [2 man[.

    The check is in the mail Jimbo.

    It better be, the season is almost over :l

    I'm going to hijack Tawnies thread (sorry) but what do you get for $50,000 ?
    Unlimited days / use ? A nice, quiet area away from the usual public-hunter sky bustin' fool ?
    Guaranteed water, 99% success rate, so on and so on ?

    I read the California Forum regularly and some of the threads like this one speaking of duck clubs and their initiation fees + annual dues is, well, somewhat outrageous....or at least more than I can afford. I should've married into money or gone to Harvard or Yale for a better paying job than the one I have now.
