    Thats awesome. I had some flooded timber I could hunt for a few years but lost the rights when the farmers brother and buddies decided they wanted to hunt in there all of a sudden. I really miss it. Killed tons of mallards and woodies and geese with a good mix of other ducks. I will have a flooded timber spot again one of these days. Nothing like mallards dropping in to a flooded timber hole.

    Yep, looks like we’re going to get quite a bit. I think this storm will be a quick mover so hopefully the water amounts won’t be too severe. I need to catch some water at my place, at least I can control the level up to a certain point. Fingers crossed ....

    Should have plenty of water to catch Tuesday haha. All my pictures may be for nought after Isis pulls out. If it dumps 4-6 inches west of our place, our stuff may be downriver somewhere by Wednesday morning lol. Weather, can’t do anything about it

BYG (actually Walters Millet to be exact I think) is just starting to head out. Only a few plants with heads and the same for the red root flat sedge

    How'd the storm treat you? It was nothing down here for us, and I mean nothing, I've had worse afternoon thunderstorms in the past month. I know the high tides and surge screwed up the coast a little though.

Caught lots of people by surprise as it strengthened quite a bit before landfall. We got about a foot of water in this spot where it is mainly flat sedge. This was yesterday. Fortunately the river was real low and the water is already receding. Down about 4-6 inches from this pic already

    Nothing wrong with that at all. It will give it a good drink to jump start seed production.
