So is anyone planning on going to the BLM hearing?
I've stopped shooting there, since I'd heard it was closed too. I see nice "wildlife" signs around the reservoir that say no shooting, but am in doubt about their authority. It is BLM land after all.
I agree with the comments about it being a reservoir bottom for the bogging. Saw some guy pretty much up to his door handles out there one time.
One thing I just thought of... If it's been there for 50 years, and people have been shooting there for a long time, it must not be disturbing the birds too much, or they wouldn't keep coming back.
