I'm planning to go on the 25th. 24th is the last day of our early 10 day duck season.

Anyone been there before and have any tips?

Anyone planning on going as well?

Not only wild tick country but mega heaven for "chiggers"...
What are chiggers you ask?
Small, unseen things that get under your skin and itch like crazy for weeks....
If area is scratched by human will leave scars for months or forever...
Turst me I know as we live on L.I.

Wear rubber boots and plenty of bug spray. Ticks unbelievable. Hoping to cold weather. Oh yeah nothing is cut the cover is very very high.

I heard about the chiggers last weekend....not sure it was true. Guess it is! So, do they bother the dogs as well...or just humans?

Chiggers only attack humans. They need soft skin. Although with these colder nights it shouldn't be a problem.

O.K. folks---as of today Oct. 4th the cover is still knee high tall.
Nothing has been cut all summer.
The chiggers just bother people as far as we have been able to tell over the past years...
Ticks aplenty~thats for sure.
The water at the Three Ponds area is low even with all the rain this summer.
There is swimming water at the Pump Pond if you know that area
Water Lilys are dying back at the Sand Spit water area...
Thats the scoop for now on the Manorville/Wading River/Otis Pike area.

How did the facility look today? Getting up early to head out there tomorrow. Guess I picked the better of the two days as far as weather is concerned...
