    Who put in? Results are supposed to be up at 5pm today if I read correctly. It’ll stink if not drawn this year with no standby hunting allowed, I’ve never killed a lot there, but try to go every year and always have a great time.

    I do.

    I don’t go every year though. Too long of a drive for standby and we usually travel further west when we head that way.

    For whatever it's worth, I just heard a duck quack, and three different times, too. Sounded like a mallard to me. It wasn't actually a quack but those noises they make while feeding. No idea why one would be in the subdivision unless back at one of the ponds. Regardless, ducks are here.

    I got drew for a Friday and Sunday. Stinks there’s no standby hunting this year. Not sure if standby is allowed at boatwright or not for this season.

    I’m curious about that too. My link also didn’t work.

    I didn’t get picked this year but didn’t expect to with no points. Last year I hunted two of the last 3 days right after they opened back up and may have killed a few. Got one buddy that’s got the last weekend so hoping for a good spot.

    Used to take one point to get drawn. Now 3 don't get it done?

    I’d say there is some point creep from all the past closings...

    But, it would be interesting to see the participation trend for these quota hunts.

    I got drawn with 1 point last year. The only one in our group of 4. They were closed for flooding on my dates so I got my points back. 2 of 4 of us got drawn this year with 2 points each. I’d say headed west is right though as they’ve had to close early the last two seasons.
