Dan Z,

Two things.

1. How am I supposed to work and not go home and start messing with all my stuff after that AWESOME PICTURE? Ha ha ha.

2. Does your blind fold up or is that how you ride across the lake? If it does fold up, I'd be curios to see how.

well well, thats just my stuff, when we all get together thats a quarter of the spread might sound like a lot but we hunt some pretty big lakes and need the numbers. add 50 goose floaters a few dozen mallards, and a few more dozen divers. and thats the full recipe. might as well add if were hunting and island a body has a couple doz full bodies and some shells, hardcores, and dsd's yup its a passion alright.

the blind goes across the lake like that (very sturdy) although it does collapse I would not have enough room for all them decoys. it fold directly in half inside the boat. I will post a pic later

Now that is one nice setup. If you don't mind me asking, how much was the investment of the blind?

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
