Hey guy, a newbie here. I don't usually post in forums, more of a casual reader, but there seems to be a few lake hunters on here and I have a question for those of you that are in the know. I have just recently started hunting the lake some due to the poor numbers/stale birds in Henderson County, and I was not sure about one thing...occupying someones blind 30 min before shooting hours. Is that a common practice down there and if so, how do the blind owners view it? We have been hunting from the bank and/or the boat. My buddy has wanted to go get in a blind a few times, but I just felt wierd about it. Not because we were going to take/tear anything up, but it just sort of seemed like crossing a line to me. I know that the group of guys that hunt the lake on the regular are a pretty tight knit group and I was wondering how this practice was viewed, and how the locals handled it if you did occupy a blind and then someone pulled up 5 min before shooting time claiming to be the owner or something like that. Just not wanting to get in a pissing match with someone on the water first thing before a hunt if this is not a regularly practiced custom.
