    Howell Island is not accessible via the causeway when the Missouri River is above 16-feet on the St. Charles area river gauge. To find river stages go to http://www.crh.noaa.gov/ahps2.

    And for the record..The website is wrong..There has been washout,which makes the floodstage differant than actuallity.I am guestimating flooding of the causway is actually around 13 ft...it was flooded all day and according to the website,it wasnt.

    And...I shot my first deer today! A really nice doe! WOOOOT :smile2:

    Hey congrats on the doe. It's pretty miserable out there right now, so you were probably one of very few that checked in a deer that day. Now you just need to get a little farther out on the island and smack one of the monsters Howell Island holds.
