I have a blind on the Kenai River flats, it is way out on the point, about as far as you can go. Not a great blind, it is more on the periphery of the main flight pattern but it is generally away from everyone and is great for the dog, my hunting partner and I. The opener on the flats has gotten fairly crowded and so this year we went another direction and decided to wait until later in the fall to get our blind in order and use it.
Yesterday I took a walk out to see how it looked and what I might need to do to it and found it had a bunch of empty beer bottles, candy wrappers, spent shells, and cigarette butts strewn all around, all fresh from the past few days.
Iíve never had a problem with others using the blind, public land, public blind, and I use to even keep decoys in it for others to use until they were stolen. But to do what these guys did is just ridiculous. I donít know a duck hunter who would do such a thing and I doubt they will see this or care if they did.
There are other people that venture out on the flats, looking for birds and so forth and what an embarrassment to have something like this for the public to see. Of course, the one day I forget my trash bag, have to go back tonight and clean up the mess.
