Once upon I was time I was looking for a blind, none were to be had, which made me feel so sad. I hugged my decoys and thought of my boys from my prior blind.
A had a small moment of regret at having given up my blind this year. I didn’t spend nearly as much time “duck hunting” but what time I did spend was a heck of a lot better than the hours I wasted looking at empty skies from a blind that I felt obligated to use solely because I’d spent a good chunk of change on.
In the end no regrets at all.
That’s the tough thing about a blind, feeling obligated to hunt it. Hard to get past. Same goes for a duck boat, but at least that’s a tangible asset. Leasing a spot is not. My wife is cool. She told me the reason I have both is so I have options and I can hunt either as much or as little as I feel like...so I hunt where it makes sense or where I feel like hunting without caring whether or not I’m getting my money’s worth. Makes it easier.
I have had 4 different blinds from the NE Zone to west of LDC. Sat for hours and hours and days and days in each one because I felt obligated. The few days I did hunt a refuge I felt I should have been in my blind. My last blind in the valley I would shoot what little fly off for an hour then go to a refuge for the rest of the day.
I know the feeling
Best bang for the $$$ with no other options or access to non public areas is the Type A pass.
You can try one place, no good and try another in the same day. I used to shoot 1/2 day at GL then if no good go to Sac till dark as it was on the way home.
Sometimes it works out sometimes it did not but cost me no more in time or gas.
Being drunk really helps if hunting with me. Blackouts are actually preferred.
Yep... in duck hunting "options" are very important part of the game..
I need a crow hunting spot.........
Anyone know of one?
Yes I do.
So did the op ever find a blind ?
