I made this a long time ago and it's been waiting for someone like you.
Everyone in the entire world can see this so good luck getting there first and holding it.
It's actually a good spot. The sun comes up behind you so you are in the shadows until the sun gets up over the ridge and trees behind the blind. The wind blows from the southwest all the time so it's good for the wind too.

Now go. Run Forrest, RUN! Park by "the Lost Pond" and walk straight up the hill, follow the treeline, turn right and then a quick left and walk down the hill to the water. That's how you get to 17. 16 is about 250 yards to your left at this point. Good luck...

EVERYBODY

Thanks, Betty. Now that spot is gonna be crawling will yahoos who done want to put in the work themselves. and they will always have full straps of tucans, iguanas, and valcaraptors!! :no: thats my favorite exotic spot.

What I think is funny is he will post a spot like that with no intention of hunting in Illinois this year, but when I ask him questions about how to improve my boat blind he always tip toes around the question. Won't ever just say "do this and it will be better". What gives?

Outside of this forum he is a pretty nice guy. I have talked to him a couple times. I know he rubs a lot of people the wrong way. I got her all figured out now though. I am just gonna do what I think is right for the blind and learn as I go.

Wow hoss, that did not work the way you thought I bet. I think there were some guys willing to help sending you a PM but you just burnt a lot of bridges spouting off like that. I know your young and I've done that before when I was your age but when you want to learn something and have guys take you out and show you the ropes, that's not how you go about it.

My advice is do your homework, if you don't have a lot of gear start slow, go on the DNR site and figure out spots to hunt that you can walk in to. Get a dozen decoys, find someone that can teach you to call etc... Your wording for the subject is what turned guys off from the start, no one will just give up their spots to you. I think its great to not want to be inside playing games and get out but when you want to learn something from other people show respect and willingness to work and that will get you farther than getting mad and spouting off. Good luck bud and hope you are able to get out this year.

:lol: Jokes on you... one inch to the east of your first marker is Ash Meadows NWR (part of the Death Valley NRA) and I have walked out of there with 5 ducks in less than an hour (teal heavy), snows frequent it and specks have shown there bills as well. Never less than a 3 bird day and when ducks stop flying the gambels quail are available, so yeah, bring plenty of shells! :lol3:

Really... Wouldn't have guessed that. I hunted up and down the Death Valley and the Mojave Preserve, saw plenty of quail, especially if you know where the guzzlers are located, but never saw a duck fly over anywhere. I'll just take your word for it, I enjoy having grass in my yard!!!!! :biggrin:
