Unless this is somehow placed well above (elevation wise) the normal high-water mark (and personally I don't see how that is possible based on the map provided), then this is on public "bottomlands", and is subject to the first-come, first-served rule. That's what the lawsuit a few years ago determined.I'm not sure if the 1st come rule applies to duck blinds actually on the land or if that just applies to blinds IN the water on the Great Lakes...i'm sure someone. With more knowledge on the subject will chime in.
which is one of the issues we've discussed in the past.Absolutely but if they are there first then missed out. I bet if you get there before them bet they sit right outside your blind
I can see it now. Screaming across the marsh on October 10th at O'dark thirty when they find another group in the blind they "rented", someone yelling "first-come, first-served", the RAP line being called....yeah, this will be good. Anyone hunting within a mile will hear it allcoming to a YouTube near you
Well...it depends (did you read the other thread from a couple of weeks back?). The Wildlife Conservation Order (WCO) for great lakes waters (which is what this thread is about) appears to be pretty clear (pertinent provision below). For non-great lakes areas, it's muddy (as we found out in the previous thread):Can a blind on public water be locked?
