The issue (high ridge) will be if the water reaches 26 feet at St. Charles they will close the North Unit and then it won't matter whether our dogs handle or not, we won't be permitted in there.
The gauge at St Charles is a 22.3 feet this morning, up slightly but the encouraging news is that despite that, the level at Clarendon, up river, is at 26 and projected to be falling over the next few days. I remain hopeful we will get the hunt in.
To answer Wormy's, “how high can the water get before we worry about the dogs getting behind high water?” We’ve hunted under all conditions as long as the Refuge remained open. If the water is rising as it was on our last night in 2015, it can get a little hairy.
I shot this video in 2015.
PS- I wasn't the guy doing the shooting in the video. LOL
