There are many draw blinds there and you have to be so far away from them before you can hunt out of a boat. Also, a lot of the people there don't like people hunting out of boats down from their blinds. And I don't want to cause a problem with anyone.

I hunt there 2 or 3 times a year. If you come across a blind and no one is in it you can hunt it. The thing is you need to be in it before shooting time. Once you are in it and you can hunt if they come up to you it is still your blind. I would ask anyone that shows up late if they would want to hunt with you or as them if you can stay. Once the sun comes up and you can hunt and no one is there it is yours.

Now hunting close to a blind. With goole earth and things like that you can look at must any blind. Map out a spot that is 250 yards away and you can hunt.

They don't like it to get out about the rules but you can check out what I am saying at the TWRA web site. I have done it a few times and when they tell me they are going to call TWRA I start to hand them my cell phone and tell them the number is in my phone they don't have to look it up.

I know this sounds like I am starting something but they wont cut you any breaks. I try to fine a nice out of the way spot but there are never any ducks when I do.

Best is to get there just as sun up and check a blind or two and to might find one you can hunt. All the blind on the lake are state own but some have not been turn over to the state yet form what I heard. You can get a map with the draw blinds and just check them.

You should try to scout out some spots on the Tennessee River. We hunt here and there but lots of empty space and plenty of woodducks to shoot at. Go one day to scout and the other to shoot. If your boat has a godevil then the possibilities are endless with all the shallow running creeks that follow into flooded timber.
