Why not just get in the blinds first and keep the guided hunters from using them that way, rather than destrying the blinds. It is first come, first serve. Public land, so they are public blinds, no matter who built them.

I'll second that. 

Know your regs, make sure you're 100% in the clear, and if some guide wants to get tough, just have the proper #'s in your cell phone...

Sounds like somebody has had some bad encounters with Mardons..    So why is it that they are allowed to set up blinds and leave them out there? isnt it illegal to build blinds on public property. I would think they could go on a documentation mission and take time stamped pictures of the blind to have wdfw remove them or give that individual permission to remove them.  Portable or not i would think that its illegal to construct a blind and leave it on public land.   Am I wrong???

I do agree there should be NO permanent blinds on public land floating or on the dunes! Mardons has been doing it for years they think the potholes are there personal play grounds. Oh and their arrogant as %$## and the game dept. won't touch them.

Ya should be something stating that structures are not to be constructed (even if temporary)and left unattended for a time period greater than 45 minutes or something like that.

In the regs it says you are allowed to build blinds but that as soon as you start building one it become's public property and is now on a first come, first serve basis. So now those blinds they have out there are open to the public if the public get to them first.

Sounds like the guy that made that sign has a problem gettin up in the morning. From my experience in the Potholes it helps to have other hunters out there. Keeps the birds moving.  The idea of making it illegal for guides to hunt public lands is a bad one. There are many folks out there that do not have the skill, or equipment to do it on there own and they have just as much right to our public lands as we do.
 When you hunt public lands you can expect some competition. If you can't compete, maybe you should take up knitting or shooting ducks on the Wii. To ruin a nice duck blind of a fellow hunter is disgracefull and as far as I am concerned anyone that would do that is a dirtbag.

In a way, I wish guides were limited to private properties, especially if they profit from it

Keep situations like this from arising

I second the fact that a few hunters help keep the ducks moving... I think it is bad to destroy the blind but better to use them....   I had A professor From CWU that  guided the potholes area for 30 years had a 4-5duck per gun day average and he only guided public land.... NEVER made permanent blinds adn was an all around good guy.... I don't think banning Guides is a good way to go either....

The growing guide trend has ruined many great traditional hunting and fishing grounds (private and public) over the last few years. Guides tend to lose respect for other sportsmen that aren't their clients and paying them.   I would love to see guides banned but that will never happen. I agree that destroying their blinds isn't right either and people should just try get to the blind early if they choose to play the public land game.
Private land?  I'm guessing already about 80% of the prime land is already tied up by the guides. It's getting real hard to find places to hunt and fish anymore unless you do it the pay to play way..

I have never ever had a bad run in with Mardon's guides.  As a matter of fact they have been downright polite and i've beat them plenty of times to 'their' blinds over the years. 

I think if the Mardon haters did their homework they'd find that the Mesebergs have put way more back into the community and local economy than they've ever "taken".   :twocents:

Guides provide access and a skill set that some people don't have the time , ability or energy to do for themselves.  What's wroing with that as long as the guides don't act like they own the place?

I admit that I use a guide sometimes and frankly if I ever was with a guide that tried to kick someone out of a blind on public property I would stop them immediately and never use them again.  It is kind of easy to blame the guides but some blame should be shared by the clients too.....not very ethical people that allow their guides to do something like that.
