The only Waterfowl Duck Blind next to the Buzzard Slough,
Palestine Timber, Tri Timber, Round Cypress, area of the Reelfoot Lake National Wildlife Refuge - Grassey Island Unit
on the Bayou Du Chien River and next to Buck Basin.
I have hunted this blind location on the Bayou Du Chien
River since 1961 when I first build at this location. This is the #1 Duck crossing spot for over 50 years at Reelfoot
Lake going to and from the Grassy Island Unit, Black Bayou Refuge,
Lake Isom Refuge, White Lake, Obion River Bottoms and the Mississippi River.
This Duck blind location is the best on Reelfoot Lake since 1961,
it being the most consistent duck blind for over 50 years on Reelfoot Lake and the # 1 duck blind for killing decoying
ducks and geese, None better "year after year".
Water Duck Blind site was inside the Reelfoot Lake National Wildlife Refuge for over 40 years, waterfowl think they are inside
the refuge boundary lines and are easy to shoot ""
