    I have heard everything from supposedly driving yourself out to hunt! I guess I'll call down this week and ask.

    Just got a message from Randy Smith. Due to budget constraints parking areas were not developed for the hunters. All hunters will be transported to blinds as in the past.

    They didn't harvest any corn. Left it in the fields and opened a small hole in front of the blinds.

    If that is the way it was actually done that is not "standard agriculture procedure/practice". Opening themselves/hunters up to hunting over bait ????
    If they strip combined it that would be a different story ??? Anybody know for sure how they did it ???

    I don't necessarily disagree with you but it was 45 days plus prior to season when they did that. The issue is going to be finding your downed birds in standing corn and if its a cripple forget about it.
