Ridgefield Blind 3

Blind 3 at Ridgefield sits in a grove of trees on small pond close to the auto tour route on the north side of the refuge. It’s a box blind on stilts that will seat three hunters.

I’ve hunted this blind once, in 2018, when it performed well.

Hunting Style

Its location off to the side of a large body of water (by refuge standards) means you’ll need to work at attracting ducks to it. Movement in your spread supplied by a jerk rig or wind duck works well here. The biggest challenge with this blind are the submerged grass clumps. When setting decoys and retrieving beware. You can drop 2 feet in one step.
