*50 percent of the time, Bob Brown, Nodaway Valley, and Ted Shanks are frozen solid by mid-December. If that occurs, we will stop holding a morning draw and initiate self check-in. If mild conditions return and morning draw is needed again, we will discontinue self check-in and return to morning draws. Call the waterfowl information lines below to verify which system is in place prior to making hunting plans.
