i drew there on the 23rd of october and they used the balls. drew 2nd...:yikes:Great article! Ernie Kafcas is a great guy. When I hunted harsen's a lot back in the late 80's he was a newbie down there. But he does a ton of things for that area, and for michigan waterfowl as a whole. Man do I recall the ferry rides, the short ride from the ferry to the office, those bingo balls that still appear in the photo...does anyone know if they still use the balls? Seems like they used them when they had 25 or 30 parties show up, but once they got more then they used the pre-printed sheets. Yep, the flats are definitely unique.
