On the B Block of the BRBR, just south and southwest of the Perry City waste water pond, there is what I think is kind of an odd "boundary." There is a single strand of "white-ish" colored wire, running parrallel to the south wall of the Perry City pond, approximately 100 yards away from said wall. There are supports every so often, to hold the wire up, and a wooden "walk over" thing that has obviously been placed there to get people past the wire, without having to duck to in the mud. I have never noticed any signs saying "DO NOT ENTER" or anything like that, except up on the rip-rap walls surround the city pond. Signs which I have seen some bubbas ignore, as they climb the wall to shoot seemingly unretrievable birds. Anyway, bubbas aside, I cannot tell from the refuge map if the north side of this wire boundary is huntable BRBR land or Perry City land, and possibly unhuntable. On the map, there's a kind of rectangular area that juts west into the east side of the B block, and I can't tell if that's suppossed to be just the city pond, or some area surrounding it as well.

I would like to avoid breaking the law and going into an area I'm not supposed to be in, if at all possible. Does anyone know anything definitive about this area and this "boundary?" Thanks in advance.

BTW, I'll post this on several different waterfowl forums in hopes of getting some info on this fairly obscure area of the BRBR. Thanks again.

The block behind "square lake" is (was) state land and the wire served as a boundary marker(and possibly an electric fence for the cattle that used to graze the refuge). Back before they opened any refuge land in the area to hunting, you could park in the first parking area and walk a narrow corridor out to the corner of the sewer ponds to access the state ground. Boy, the hunting was good back then. Not many people knew of it before the refuge expanded their open areas and put it on the map. Had many hunts out there all alone.

Ya that is state land behind the wire and Perry city only owns a small amount by the road that takes you the the sewer ponds. Back in the day before the refuge dug the canal out for boats that was some of the best foot soldier hunting around. You could shot geese almost every day. Now that the boats are out there it really is not that hot of a spot and Doug Miller showed it one time and that was the begin to the end, everyone and their trash droppin friends knows about it now. I wish they would go back to Harold Crane and Ogden Bay to leave their mess and stop messin with that spot. Was out there this morning and sky busters like crazy. :evil:

I remember cringing when I saw that spot appear on Doug's show... :shock: Hasn't really been the same since, if you ask me.

Thanks for the clarification, fellers. I thought that was the case, but like to be sure. And is it just me, or does the map make the City Pond look HUGE?!
