Mermet draws every morning for, I believe, 31 blinds. You need a small boat (I don't suggest taking a 16 footer, it's just not built for big boats) and if ya don't have one for ten bucks they will rent you a boat, paddles and life jackets. There are also two walk in areas. If there are birds there then you can kill them in the walk in area just as well as you can in the blind areas. Opening morning is a mad house. Typically at least as many blanks as there are blinds. We have gone 4 yrs now without drawing a blind opening morning and last year I blanked all three times I hunted there. It is hit and miss, but you get to sit in a nice warm blind (if you are drawn) and it's free (unless you have to rent a boat). I have only hunted near the Cache so I won't be much help.
