    Anybody believe either Union or Horseshoe will thaw enough to hunt Saturday or Sunday? Can they open up some holes by running the pumps? Have permits, but too old to take a dive on rotten ice. How about helping a regular guy with an update.

    Had a permit for today and stayed home. All I know is Crab Orchard was 95% or more frozen yesterday morning.

    Union is worth a shot both days if u have a permit. If they’re pumping there should be 4 blinds with water

    Union will have a couple blinds with open water. Horseshoe doesn’t have pumps to open the holes back up. They will be locked up tight.

    Last time I was at union county I picked which blind I wanted. The only thing they gave me was the kill numbers for the year and the last couple of days
