Sloughs Blinds 37 and 44

Postby Duck Hole » Tue Nov 26, 2013 7:11 am

Were hunting Sloughs for the first time this year. We have blinds 37 and 44 and was wondering what they were like. And where is a the best place to stay at. Henderson looked like the best bet I thought.

I don't know about 37. 44 is a waste to me. If you have a big snow spread, you MAY knock some down. But don't count on ducks coming in. I drew it also for dec 4, 5 and will not be hunting it. 2 buddies drew for the next week so I'm just waiting to go then, they got better picks. Henderson is where we stayed last year. Not that bad of a drive.

I've only been there on one trip, but we did scout pretty thoroughly. Most blinds are pretty easy to get to and drop off stuff. Some are a decent hike from parking for the lazier hunters, but its not that bad. A ramp to the ohio close to the sloughs office also.

I was in 41 last year and watched a lot of boats on that gravel road, i was wondering where they were going. Not one duck came in either day. Makes for a long drive back to Winchester. Giving it one more try this yr. As long as weather looks good, if it doesn't then i wont go.

37 is in the cape hills unit and is the middle of a big crp field. Beside it is a private piece of ground that the owner floods every year. If the birds start coming off the back 37 can be good. There is very little competition.

Nope....all they had last week was ice, snows, specks, ice, and more ice. Very few ducks.

44 is the word blind there period. Unless you have a huge snow spread you MAY pull a few.
