We had a great first half of the day but the second one was one I never want to experience again; My buddy Gerry pulled a 94 for Wister and with only 10-20 reservations showing on any given day I knew there would be plenty of good spots to take so 3 of us headed out and hunted a new spot for us in the north half. We had plenty of time to set out 5 dozen dekes and set the blind as it started to sprinkle; shooting time was slower than normal as the skies were dark and us 3 old farts don't swing too fast on those low flying teal @ warp speed like we used to but 30 minutes into it we had groups of Gadwall and Pintail dropping down into the spread and we finished on Pintail early. It was a smorgasborg of ducks as we shot several teal, couple of Gads and 2 Widgeon, 3 Pintail Drakes and a female Redhead . That 1 Pintail limit really screws up your day early as we really had to make a good I.D on the birds cupping down into the spread before we could blast them even though I had a pretty good idea what they were while calling them in. Surprised not to see any Shovelers on this day. We had several hard rain squalls come through throughout the morning with the last one coming around 11 so we started packing it up. It went quickly downhill from there. The rain turned the Wister dirt into muck, we had to pack out half our gear first as the carts were useless with the sticky mud binding the wheels making the second trip back a tough 1/4 mile pull back to the truck which took almost an hour. We noticed a nice Chevy Duramax completely buried in a drainage ditch next to the access road; he called several towing companies and said a halftrack unit was on the way. After getting our gear into the trucks I noticed 5 other trucks appearing to be stuck on the other better access roads out of the area. The only road out left was the one surrounding the hunting sites which we're not supposed to drive on so reluctantly we tried it and I promptly slid off the edge and stopped as any further 4WD spinning would just get me further down the bank; my other buddy behind us had a Tundra 4WD but he couldn't pull us out so we were stuck too.It was 1PM and the halftrack didn't arrive until 3; it took them 3 hours to get the Duramax out and they needed another tow truck as they burned up the winch on the halftrack trying to get him out. The halftrack came and pulled me out by 6:30 then it took them 2 hours to get the other 4 vehicles out that were blocking the best exit road; one hunter left his vehicle and hoofed it to the highway stating he would come back Friday to get it. They just pushed it out of the way. We finally hit dry pavement @ 9PM, home by midnight and in bed by 1:15AM after a nice warm shower while washing the dog; I'm sure I'm not the only one who's ass is still sore after the $560 tow fee they hit each of us for but at least I'm warm, dry, and not swatting mosquitoes every 2 seconds but will probably burn a half day cleaning out my truck and washing all the gear. Note to self: Avoid Wister during and shortly after a rain! I think it was pretty good for everybody as I would expect the average to be pushing 3-4 ducks per shooter from what the guy at the Check Station said.
