Well I rechecked the slough again this weekend where I have my stand and the water is still about 10inches deep, it has only dropped 2 inches in a week. The bad part about it is this is the first year in 3 years that these groves of persimmons have had fruit and this is they are LOADED! I still plan on hunting it come gun season hopefully some of them moccasins will vacate! Last year in here we killed 17 moccasins in 1 day:smack:I sure hate wading at dark with them jokers everywhere. But I am also thinking when the guns start roaring the thickets around the slough we have a few good bucks using it!

I think I have a better idea, about 100lbs of corn and dig a few holes and let the hogs do the work on the dam for me! I put a bag on the ground next to it last weekend and they dug the ground down 6 inches!I figure dig a few holes fill with corn and line up the dam with corn and turn em loose!
