    We have a 30-35hp motor on our well. The riser/discharge at the blind is 8", puts out about 600-800gpm in front of the pit. Depdending on wind, it keeps it open as can be for about 70 yds around or more. If a guy wanted to go break some ice to make it larger, he could. It gets pretty thin on the edges. We do this when there's 4-6" of ice and it'll clear it out just fine.

    Had a group in the end of the season land far enough away from the blind that I couldn't shoot em
