    I know this is asking a lot, but I haven't been to the meto in about 3 years and I thought about taking a friend who has never hunted flooded timber to hunt there on the closing weekend. Anyway, is there any certain area you would recommend? I don't want your secret spot, but a hole that has been ok in the past for you is kind of what I am looking for. You can send me a PM is you know a decent area. If I went, I would just be walking out through the woods not knowing where to go and might screw up some other guys which is not what I like doing. If I don't get any response, I understand. can't hurt to ask though. :thumb: Thanks guys.

    Good luck finding water. I have heard that it has been draining for a while. I have only hunted there once - and that was about 8 years ago.. so I'm no help.

    Yeah that's what I hear. I have another spot to go (that is not timber) if I don't get any help, but I would like to get one timber hunt in this year. :smack:

    Go ahead, but I think I will stand on the levy and watch, the price of addmission is alot cheaper!!!!! The ticket to that event is a little steeper than my pocketbook can stand!!!!!:smack:
