anyone heard of the proposed changes MDC wants to put in place? no more having to build permanent blinds at your spot, electronic drawing, etc?
you can check the changes out at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BKGFYRG
we applied for a redraw in the Alton Pool this year and got the blind we wanted. only have it for 1 year and had to tear down the old one and rebuild. its a good spot and you can shoot birds out of it. thing is, we have only used it twice. and that is completely our fault. but the sh** other people do to these blinds when they hunt them is ridiculous IMO. 2nd time out we found beer cans, trash, torn down structures we put up, and a lot of the cover (pin oak & willow) was tossed, etc.
i am cool with providing the public with as many opportunities to hunt as possible, but people straight up don't give a damn about something unless they built it or paid for it!
i am voting in favor of the proposed changes. would love being able to take my layout or another boat blind out there instead of dropping the time and money it takes to build a permanent blind. especially after my experiences (though limited) this year.
