Comments

Thanks for the info, Jeff.
I’d advise anyone to call before they go.  As I recall (map at IDNR webiste doesn’t show the areas), Areas A,B, and C are the only areas at the site.  So the following is not possible:
“Starting November 22, the site will only be open Wednesday through Sunday.  Areas A, B, and C will be open Monday through Thursday, except Area C will be open the weekend of first Firearm Deer Season (November 19, 20, and 21).”
The site can’t be open Wednesday to Sunday if Areas A, B, and C are open Monday through Thursday.

Interesting point that I will forward to the DNR, which put out the above press release.
