One of my favorite weekends is finally here. Good friends, great food, and plenty of stories. Being lucky enough to get a blind would only make it that much better. I will be going to the Marshall draw as I have in years past. Anybody else looking forward to it?

Although I’m right down the road from Marshall, I’ll be at Woodford - looking forward to a wild game feast before the drawing.

We drew a blind on the Des Plaines, water levels are slightly better, but if we dont get any needed rain, the launch might dry up.  We had to paddle our 14” V hull out 300 yards to get to the deeper channel….at this point there is no more than 24 inches of water in the basin.

Had a buddy draw us a blind for the first year, ought to be interesting. We usually hunt public river land but it’s worth a shot. Still wish we could use permanent blinds on the river again!

I hunt pool 13, hey outlawed permanent blinds 4 or 5 years ago, which is the worst thing that has happened to our waterfowling.  It happened because of all the idiots that didnt properly clean up their blinds and ended up with 2X4’s floating down the river nail side up, etc.  Now we have to way of claiming an area and its a free for all every morning.  Die hards are known to camp the night before opening morning just to hunt their favorite spot.  My opening day spot is a well kept secret which produces great every year, hope to keep it that way.
