Just curious what the current situation is over there.  I heard it was only half flooded and they were only letting on half the quota.  Have they begun letting more water on yet?  Did anybody hunt Sutter opening weekend or this morning?  How did y'all do?

Well, I decided to go and see for myself yesterday afternoon.  I left work and was on the refuge by 4:15pm.  Hunted till the last minute and didn't see any ducks closer than 1/2 mile away.  There was no water, it was hot, no wind, lots of mosquitos and I was one of eight people on the refuge for the evening hunt.  You gotta love hunting CA in October!  It is no joke about the water situation at Sutter.  Even the ponds that do have water are not full.  Give it a couple weeks and we'll be back to normal!
