Murray's Point


Named after the N.J. Judge who founded our Waterfowl Club, Murray's Point Blind is an excellent spot to knock down a few Mallards in the later season. One reaches this blind using a long boardwalk across tidal mud and marsh. The brackish water and weather eventually just beats up everything. Here we see that the floor of this duck blind has caved in rendering it out of commission.It needs to be re-built. Since this is one of the Club's better blinds, this chore cannot wait. Duck season re-opens this Wednesday....so we need to get busy. It just goes to show you that a Waterfowl club ain't all wonderful passing shots on wood ducks,whiskey by the fire and geese dropping in the decoys.

do you ever come across any snakes, etc, hiding out in these blinds? or is it too cold by the time the season starts?

Nope....no snakes. You do see a turtle swim by once in a while in the early season. We have found squirrel nests under the benches in the Fall....

I can relate to this--Bryce, my boyfriend has spent quite a lot of time during "work weekends" at his hunt club!
