Just a reminder for anyone hunting the fuge this weekend, the Seventh Annual CWA Dinner in Niland is this Saturday night at the Chamber building starting at 6PM.

I am not an organizer, just a long time member of CWA. If you hunt Wister, you should be too. All the work that has been done to improve the refuge over the last three years has been paid for in large by dinners just like this.

Show up and support CWA.

hell, I'll even buy you a beer.

    I think I'll be sweat lining also since my hunting partners girl is having a baby any minute. Looks like a long boring day in the blind alone and I'm guessing that will be the norm for the rest of the season.

    Any other info on the dinner? I might see if I can stick it out.

    Got drawn 2nd for the sweat line, hunted 115C3 and had my limit by 10 AM, how did you guys end up doing? It was non stop when the wind started at around 8.
    Was 11th in the sweat. Birds all over the place, but the wind kinda hosed us. Birds kept skirting us, as our blind didn't relate well to the wind direction. Did a lot of bird watching between shot opportunities. Managed a nice strap though.








    I went through Niland at about sunset and only saw like 2 cars at the Chamber of Commerce. Did anybody show?

    I hear ya, the wind was decent for my location, I just wish I had a couple more guys with me so I could have been out longer...not that I'm complaining. Definitely one of the better days I've had down there as far as the number of birds flying. All in all a great day. I was done so early I never made it to the dinner.

    Glad you had fun.....not a smart idea to list blind sites where you shoot limits on the internet. Next time it probably won't be there for you now.

    I'd rather mess with you, but I have to agree on this one. Especially if you find a sleeper blind that may fall to you in the sweatline......Just pm me the info:D

    As Brandon knows my buddies and I have been killing limits out of unpopular blinds on a consistent basis with poor draws. Word has gotten out and those blinds are popular now and picked early. Hasn't really effected us though. We pick somewhere else and limit there too...:Death_To_Above: ........

    Yep....all it takes is a few too many beers and loose lips. This spot will probably be there anytime I want it. Unless I advertise it on the internet.
