Big Creek Wetlands Blind 2

Blind 2 overlooks a 10 acre shooting pool. The slough floods very easily due to a log jam on Big Creek. This is our most dependent water source.

Big Creek Wetlands Blind 1

Dry land access to the blind depending on the water level of Big Creek. The water level of this 10 acre marsh fluctuates so chest waders are recommended.

This 80 acre farm was originally scouted to lease for quail and deer hunting the summer of 1982. The landowner told the club the east 20 acres flooded due to a log jam on Big Creek and at times, duck hunting could be a bonus to the lease. We hunted the slough for 2 years as a wade-in area and discovered it’s potential as a prime spot for waterfowl hunting development.

Since the slough was too wet to access a dozer we spent several hot summers clearing brush with chain saws and burning the brush piles to keep as much open water as possible. Fortunately, the summers of 1988 and 2003 were dry enough to allow a dozer to work for 2 days to finish off and groom the work we did by hand.
