2021 / 2022 Waterfowl Blind Information

Stone Lakes NWR Blind Information

Availability and conditions of blinds vary throughout the season.  Chest waders are needed as hunters may be wading through some swales. Hunters are responsible for bringing additional camouflage as available natural cover may be limited at individual blinds, or 'brushing' may deteriorate as the season progresses. Plan ahead. Best practice is to come prepared with extra camouflage than possibly sit exposed watching other blinds call in your birds.
