For most the duck season is about over if it isn't already. I'm curious to hear what everyone does for off season projects for their duck hunting?

Personally I have this thing about my own blind where it's never really camoed enough? I'll spend a lot of time adding more natural vegatation and whatnot. Heck I planted a couple vines around it 2 years ago and it's since grown all over it. It's basically 2 trees about 18 foot apart and I built a floor and half a front wall. From there I've built stools, shell and gear compartments and even an area for a stove/grill. It seats 4 very well with all the gear and yes....a dog door and a front plank for ol Sally.

One of these years I'd like to get into carving my own cork decoys, sounds like my kind of hobby.

I hope I'm not alone with my 365/year obsession, any others have projects?

We work on our duck boat all the time. You would be amazed at what you can pick up on ebay to outfit it with. Put a heck of a paint job on it last year. This year, it will be a blind. If anybody knows how to stablize a flatbottom 12ft jonboat let me know.

Stabilizing can be made by buying a couple of the herters oarlock mounts for $3 each in cabelas and running conduit through them into the mud. I bought them but I have a wide bottom 54" jon and never seem to really need them. Hope this helps.

I have a few projects underway.I made several s/s spreader rigs and some swivel mounts for jerk cord anchors.The swivel mounts are pulleys attached to a revolving base with a few pounds of weight slung beneath.I'm also making my own portable ground blind that doubles as an equipment carrier,I'm using 1 inch steel conduit for the frame.I am always busy with the boats,thats what boats do to you I suppose. :) I have to get to the range more often now that the wife bought me a Ruger red label all weather s/s O/U shotgun. :D

I would love to here what everyone thinks about my little arguement. My friends say its way too early to start making a blind, becuase it will just sit around out there and go bad, yet i think it will be alright throughout the summer... Also i really need something to do that has to do with hunting or ill go insane.

I have a bunch of Wood duck and Mallard hen houses out. I put out another 8 Woodie boxes with cone shaped predator guards and 11 more Mallard hens out this year in addition to the over 30 I already had out…
