Chances of getting a blind site this late in the season

Postby firsttimer » Fri Dec 27, 2013 7:07 am

Another dumb newbie question.

I realized from looking at the public licensing map for DNR that there are some blind sites that I could get to with my jon boat or kayak safely and wanted to know if there is any chance that they may still be available. The sites are mostly in AA county. Or is the kind of thing that I need to get to the lottery on the two days a year? Hope that makes sense.

Thanks

It is very slim lluck that any site would be availible where you could kill a duck. There may be about two sites left in AA county but they would most likely be in a anti duck area. There are more and more duck hunters every year and less sites every year.

Good Luck,

No luck although I did not check any other sites than the few I had picked out that were accessable by my kayak. They were on private land or taken through the lottery. The proccess is about as helpfull and effective as the DNR website. The security gaurd sent me to the new express title place on west street when the waterfowl business is handled by the wildlife and heritage people in the tawes building.

All the blind sites were penciled in on what seemed to be ADC maps. So unless you have a list you would like to try then theres no way to tell which sites are open. I am amazed that the DNR is so far behind with there website and that they still use hand maps for the blind system.

This is just another hurdle to overcome. I will find out how to hunt in this damn state without buying a 15,000$ boat LOL. There has to be a few spots that could be accessed by land. The next attempt is assateague island. Looks like the blinds there can be hiked to. Anyone ever hunt there?

Did go out Saturday on the Patuxent to the one spot we can hunt. It was brutally cold and there were no birds flying at all. still, always fun to get out in the blind and enjoy nature.
