    I went out there today, and it is the lowest that I have ever seen it. The refuge looked good, but if you're going to be running a big boat you need to check things out first.

    I went out scouting today at Paul Errington Marsh by Elkhart. I didn't see many ducks, but didn't know if it was the time of day or the time of year that caused me to not see very many. Has anyone here hunted Paul Errington before? Is it any good?
