Ready for Action


In the previous post I told about the newly named “three lame ducks,” the old duck hunters who brought the duck blind they built out to the field. At the time I didn’t have a photo of the blind in its location with the final touches to have it blend in a little. Here it is, ready for action. Probably it will need a stormier day to work better, but for now it can sit out here and get used to its new surroundings.dscf2187a

  1. That’s a whole lot better than lying flat in a muddy trench!

  2. For a duck hunter, that’s luxury!

    • It sure is. I’ve stood out in icy weather a few times (years ago when I was more foolish) while the Captain did his duck hunting thing, and I couldn’t see how the misery of freezing was worth the thrill of watching the night flight come in – wonderful as that was.

  3. Looks like the grand Hotel Blind. Now they only need the ducks flying around the “hotel”. Love it!

  4. With a little snow it will be less noticeable!

  5. It wouldn’t surprise me if a homeless person climbs in there at night, desperate to get out of that frigid air and wind! brrrr…. Perhaps they should install a solar panel or two and then they could plug in a heater or something. ha ha ha.

  6. It blends in fairly well and will provide shelter as well as ability to be unseen, for the most part. Anneli, this was interesting. Your blog shows us a wide variety of life and the great outdoors! . 🙂
