This is the water blind we ran this afternoon. The weather was overcast with light rain. Wind was at my back. Distance is 380 yards. The blind requires an angle entry off of the dike road, push through lily pads and grass, get on first point (which is actually the dike road that meanders around with the shoreline), re enter on an angle from the road, push past a large cove towards an oncoming bank, push past the corner of the bank and between the corner and cover laden stump about 8 feet from the shore, angle away from shoreline, cross a large section of lily pads, then up to the dam where the birds were planted. Time for the blind was approximately 15 minutes per dog.

Below is a Google satellite image of the ponds. The blind is run from near the bottom pond on the left, across the cove, adjacent to the tech ponds, and to the dam through the pads.
