looks like the L5 levee is the northern boundary of 3A north, it's the one used to access Holey land

:rebel: 3A hit there needed 11.6 elev, this morning so it will not be the water that holds this up. so I sure hope they don't see 10 deer, is that L5 LEVEE road accessible to the public. :rebel: :dontknow:

Yes it is but both the L4 and L5 levees are closed to the public until they re-open WMA3.

spoke with FWC today at the stub canal ramp area 2. 2 things have to happen, water needs to go down a few more inches and 3 nights in a row there has to be less than 10 deer on the levee. The FWC officer told me he drove the levy last night and there were a lot more than 10 deer on the levy, the biologists are checking on a daily basis. still going to be closed for a little bit

This is actually total horse crap. They close the levee which reduces traffic, the levees provide some of the more succulent sources of food, and they're waiting for a 'few more inches' or until deer stop hanging on the levee. Guess what. Until traffic resumes (yeah, peckerhead, before you even say it, there's not that much traffic out there to begin with), the deer are going to be on the levees eating the tender young grasses that grow up there. This is deliberate. Sure would like to be a fly on the wall when staff comes around preaching their agenda to the commissioners.

:rebel: This 3 night 10 deer or less on levee crap is messed up ,there should be a certain elev, to reach and that's it the deer can get off the levee or not. them crazy deer could stay on the levee for ever I have never heard of such a stupid rule. the elev, they wanted was 11.6 and its at 11.3 so open the frigging place up the deer will get off the levee. :rebel: F.W.C. IS RETARDED and is just another excuse to screw with the people of Florida. :rebel:

:rebel: Well talked to a woman at the F.W.C. south region office and the game has changed a little now they are still looking for the 11.6 elev, but its a average from gauge 62 and 63 which happen to have the highest water level of all gauges. the average is 11.51 or 5.4 inches to come down still plus the 10 deer on the levee crap. the thing that gets me is the 62 gauge is at 11.69 and 63 is 11.34. BUT THE REGULATION ELEV, FOR GAUGE 62 FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR IS 11.75 WHICH BOTH GAUGES ARE BELOW ((SO GO FIGURE GETTING SCREWED FOR SURE)) and the 65 gauge which I believe is over in 3A south is a foot lower at 10.31 :slap: :rebel: plus asked for someone else to call me back that never happened
