What makes a marsh blind over $5k high when you pay over $5k for a field blind? Don't you usually kill more birds in a marsh blind than a rice field? Just wondering. Know plenty of ppl that would pay way over $5k for a productive marsh blind. Guys in camp next to me pay $40k for 600 acres. It is what it is nowadays. Gotta pay to play. Thanks Duck Dynasty!

Never leased a field blind, but I guess the convience. Blinds are already there, farmer controls water and food supply. The hopes of the speckle belly kill.... goose season runs a lot longer than duck season. No boat needed... all just guesses.

I guess convenience does play a role. I know guys that pay $7500 for productive rice field blinds in Whiteville. Owners know they can get it. My lease has gone up every year the last 3 years. Too many "yuppies" with deep pockets.

I'm learning that quickly this year. I hunted a field blind years ago by Rayne and it was as easy as walking to the blind in your tennis shoes. You could easily make a hunt before school in the morning. Ducks were decent, but the geese were phenomenal. This year we got in a marsh lease and it's non stop work!! If it isn't one thing, it's another. I'm not complaining because any reason to be out there is good enough for me, but hunting in a pit blind from a levee is cadillac!

If you know somebody that is willing to pay over $5000 for a blind in the marsh tell them to PM me. My blinds are leased for this year but I have 2 that kill 250 -350 ducks per year. I would consider leasing them one of the blinds next season.

Thanks

Matt, get ready to spend some money in a marsh. Our lease isn't that much for 1 section, but the up keep is killing us. In the last 5 years we have spent thousands of dollars trying to keep it open and clean. We finally broke down and got mud boat. This should help. But don't expect any help from land owners on any problems. The river drains have the state trough the GC marshes off of it. That's a lot of fertalizer coming down. That's why it grows and changes from 1 year to the next.

My buddy leases 4 blinds for 36k a year (Rice field)

Same guys have leased for last 5, he does allow them to guide hunts on it if they want. They do guide quite a few speckle belly hunts. Last year they hunted 22days in a row with limit of specks each day

20 minutes from Br would be tough to find a blind that would consistently produce like that. I know of blinds 30 minutes from lafayette where you can get action like that at a third of that cost though.

Yep, and they pay it... use to be 30k but they had to install a whole new irrigation system so prices go up


I personally would never pay to hunt, im lucky enough to have enough good friends who farm and family land that I don't have to lease to kill anything



I buy decoys and have bought a few pit blinds etc which i think that I should at least do that much to hunt!!



Some Drs and lawyers pay some stupid money to hunt, I think Cherry Ridge its 10K for two day hunt for 6 people

An avg rice field blind will go at 5k minimum. If you are able to have one for less than that price and kill 200-300 ducks not counting teal season consider yourself very lucky. Most are 6-8K and that is the range we pay and we kill about 350-400 just for big duck season. Also, not all blinds are the same (good) even on the same farm. 1-2 blinds will always be better for the most part than the others on the same farm.
