Because of a lack of water, then ice, etc., I've been getting a little anxious. Yesterday 2-5 pm last night, it all paid off. Wood Ducks on the Jerk Cord - a Teal Mojo - ice had thawed - those birds would circle a few times then go get a long low approach, we could watch them coming down the pipe, through the cracks, then they'd cup right over the blind 10 ft over our heads. They have absolutely no concern with this blind. It was one of those afternoons we won't forget for a while. The girl in this picture, my daughter, just wanted to watch yesterday. This morning she showed up with a license, stamps, and a gun. Ha ha I had no idea. Recognize her Scott? Guess I could tell her to let that blonde hair fall out and start a Duck Hunting Show.

The Beaver Cut Limbs make a very heavy blind. For a boat blind, I think bamboo might be perfect. I've picked up beaver cut bamboo, just like wood. When the bamboo is green you could bend it and it's light. Just a thought.

The water came up, 2 ft, with this last 6 inches of rain - ducks are spread all over though.

Ingenious. I just peed in my pants a little. Fantastic job, y'all.
I was told people wouldn't take me seriously without a signature.

Id close in the shooting holes with small tops of buckbrush when hunting solo or install flip tops with small limbs woven throughout to eleminate the "holes". They show up big time from the air. Learned the same thing from my hole with an flyby.

Yep I saw it also and have already added some sticks. A friend, who's done this before, has told me to paint the inside white, then light gray to match the beaver sticks. Seems weird since we're always trying to get into the dark shadows, but he said to trust him. I'll have those shooting holes washed out somehow by next fall.. Also decided to take out more brush on the side I didn't really clear. Thanks for comments...
