P.I. Blinds

I know there are others who feel this way.  Do you guys ever notice the same people getting the same blinds or close to the same location, year after year.  Just looking for some comments, thats all.

    Its a lottery system: Its luck of the draw. There have been years that I have drawn and have gone years with out drawing.

    What if some one was to just walk along the bayshore and rig out with some decoys and set back inthe weeds is that lajit ? I was up for the steelys and was amazed at how nice a setup they have there for the hunters and maybe the next time I D LIKE TO BRING MY DOGS AND SOME PUDDLERS AND GIVE IT A GO .

    Birky, If you draw a blind, you have to build your own according to their speculations.
     
    If the blind is not occupied you can hunt out of it, the best time is for no shows is Mon-Fri, the only person that can throw you out of the blind is the person who drew it, he has to put his name and address somewhere on the blind, it has to be him, his brother, father, cousins and friends can not ask you to leave, only him.  Good luck.  John

    thats a good fish, they are all good, some are gooder than others

    Birky,
     
    Creel is dead on. If someone wants you to leave, have them prove to you that their the blind owner(do it in the best way possible).  My experiance, more often than not(unfortunatly) has been that people say their the blind owner and infact their not.  
    The hunting can be good at times, however your at the mercy of other hunters around you.

    Travis46,
     
    You have to fill out an application for the blinds and have your hunting license, duck stamp and migratory permit with you.  As I recall, the applications start sometime after labor day and go for a couple weeks.  I believe( if someone can confirm) that you can apply at the Tom Ridge Center or at the park office on the pennisula.

    Runtgetter,
     
    I have never been to a blind drawing.  From what I heard is that they have a youngster draw the pick and gives it to the director to read off the name... can you confirm that, I would appreciate it?

    Sorry if I misunderstood but does the kid read off the name or does the director? Either way it doesn't matter... Clearly see that there could be issues there.  BTW---- they could keep the picks in a seperate container for people to see who was selected, if multiple entries, folded sides...etc.

    What I feel happens most is groups of guys who hunt together all put their names in... luckily someone might get drawn.  My group of guys has gotten a blind the past 3 years and one year we had two guys selected.  You may often feel the same guys got the pick but in reality it may be their buddy, son, daughter, brother, or even wife who was really drawn for the blind. 
     
    I do believe it all varies though because we've been anywhere from the 80th pick all the way down to the 6th overall pick.  That 6 pick was mine last year  and I cashed in with blind 74. 
     
    I haven't been to a drawing personally but I feel they do it fairly for the most part -- possibly becoming a duck club member may have a little influence on it.  I became one last year and then got the 6th pick - probably just luck but giving a little $$$ for the ducks can't be bad karma.
