Didn't look like anybody else was going up there and I was too anxious to wait. so I dragged the kids out of the house. They were unhappy about the drive, but changed their tune when we got ice cream to celebrate.

I believe we receive the email on Monday. At least that's what the lady at the office said Thursday when I called.

Since exempt hunters are not being called in for re-education, I assume it will be unchanged from last year.

1st to setup claims the spot. 100 yard min separation. Disputes settled between hunters. Zone map online... email should state if there are any closed units. (Controlled burns, or whatnot) Email will say when setup is allowed to start.

Oh, and don't go in my spot.

Email states

A single stand and feeder may be placed after receipt of this letter but cannot be hunted until September 29, 2018 and receipt of a Lake Georgetown hunting permit.

But if you read the hunting policy it states that all feeders and blinds must have your permit number on them. So can we start placing feeders or do we need to wait until permits are issued?

This has been asked every year. Email says you can put it in now. Followup with qual, fees, etc by the due date.

Sorry for the confusing wording ... Tapatalk autocorrected.

You can setup now, just put the permit number on the blind and feeder when you get it.
