well, we scout the area starting in sept. and we have a few spots in mind way before opening day. If you don't go out that nite, your chances of getting the spot you want go way down. Besides, what is the purpose for this reg? I understand the shell limit and all that but the time limit makes no sense to me. I mean if I'm stupid/dedicated enough to go out in the swamp at midnight and spend the night out there, what does it matter?

The purpose for this rule is keep crazy people out of the woods at 11:00 at night. It's to keep joe blow from tring to beat everyone to their hole. It's a form of safety to keep people from spending the night in below freezing temps.

Wait a minute. If you're deer hunting, you can motor into the refuge anytime you want and if you're duck hunting you have to sit and wait?
