    This is a newly cleaned out Timber lake. We keep water when we get it for free...we will have some milo later in the year in some other pools as they draw down. Proving we don't flood again.

    Blind # 6 is back in the ground and fully functional....Tim (Sgt. Duck) was large and in charge and made it all happen! We anchored the blind with 4 concrete blocks that weighed 4000 lbs. each and then use 1/2" steel cable to attach them to the blind.
