    hell yea

    I’ve destroyed many a blind with a chainsaw and/or skil saw blade on a weed eater, but never actually burned one.

    I had a guy leave a real nasty note on my truck one opening morning, talking about how I ruined opening day for him and his kid because I destroyed their blind the night before. Total irony because that was the one time when I actually didn’t do it.

    Both Big Lake and St. Francis Floodway in Arkansas had blinds on public land for years. Then, AGFC decided they weren’t allowed and destroyed them, not allowing new ones to be built. Caused some really hard feelings in these parts.

    Maybe if certain locals hadn’t laid private claims to public land and run off/threatened any outsider who encroached on pee paw’s hole then that wouldn’t have happened.

    The AGFC didn’t decide out of nowhere to put an end to a practice that wasn’t causing them headaches.

    My Grandfather "had" two blinds in the Saint Francis. He stopped hunting them in the early 70s as he had other options including his membership in Hughes Hunting Club and the land on the L'Anguille. To this day those holes of his (even without the blinds) are refered to as his holes and the folks that hunt them would let me hunt them in a heartbeat if I asked. I know folks that still live on houseboats out there.

    The easiest way to hunt Big Lake was to date a local girl whose Daddy had a blind. I had that going for me for two years in the mid 90s:grvn
