Just make sure you have a good life insurance policy in place before you decide to go on a rampage to make things right out there. It isn't like the refuges out there. Folks suddenly come up missing and no one ever knows what happened to them. Personally I choose to let those folks keep their residence in those blinds. They have invested much more into them then I have and I'm not looking to go on a personal suicide mission to prove that public land is for the public.
Consider yourselves warned..........
Been jumpin' in blinds for about 5 years now. I'd like to see someone make me disappear. Not only am I strapped but one phone call and the boys (forget the 5-0) will be out in droves.
Aren't we all strapped Einstein? As far as people getting killed, I have heard stories, is it true? Probably not but I have witnessed personally people messing with blinds in Sherman and getting their a$$es beat at the ramp, I used to hunt out there a lot, I put my time in and scouted, created my own ponds to hunt only to have my blinds tore down,burnt down and even a floater stolen and reclaimed. I'm done with the bull, I have a nice duck boat now and hunt wherever whenever and it's better that way I don't enjoy putting 1500 into a floater only to have it ripped off.
You left a 1500 Dollar floating blind on public land.
Nope, I built a nice blind to my liking and staked it on public water, back in the day(over 20 years ago) I used to hunt Sherman 5 days a week and since I like stuff my way I built a nice blind and put it in a spot that I made that was solid tules, I worked hard to make a spot instead of poaching someone's else's stuff, only issue is when people find out where it is it's toast, I was young and hungry and I worked hard to kill birds eventually I got tired of the 99% of idiots that hunt public land and have no respect for others or ethics! just because you buy a duck call and blow till your blue in the face regardless of how the birds react to it does not make you a duck hunter it makes you an idiot! same as scrapin and crippling birds that are way out of range! nope in learned the hard way by putting hard time in to get results! I still hunt a lot of public land except now I don't build blinds I have a nice boat and 9 times out of ten I'm in and out and no one knows I'm there, I don't blow calls for no reason I rarely shoot more than 30 yards and I scout more than I hunt, silent stealthy and ethical, no more running for one when I can tip toe and get em all.
And yeah even 20 years ago you could easily dump 1500 into a nice floater, easily.
Take a kid hunting, the memories will last a lifetime.
