So, I've never hunted in Cheatham before and came away from the drawing with Blind 23. I've only hunted a few times with some friends down in Camden and after going to look at my blind it's obvious I'm in a whole new world. Does anybody have any advice other than the typical "you can't kill nothin' there" advice I've gotten so far. Since I'm new to the sport I need a good place to learn and stay out of the veteran's way so hopefully #23 will work. Can anybody tell me when they flood around the blinds and how deep it usually is? What's the preferred way of getting into and out of the blind without pissing everyone off? Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks REDRUM1187, I was wondering if everybody parked there and waded in or if they tried to get closer to the blind.

If I had it I would talk to TWRA and see what options, if any are there to move it somewhere else around the field. I believe it needs to be rebuilt anyway. We were on the fence between 10 and 23 at the draw and took 10. We're doin the same thing to it. Moving it. Can't hurt anything just a little more work

park in main parking lot walk down the road till u get to drain then wade straight in. water no deeper then waist deep. ive killed a few out of it all being pass shooting. hard to work birds in there . at least you have a place to hunt. get to know all the guys down there if they have openings they will let u hunt. try a vortex machine it might help. i wouldnt do too much cause ive seen good old timers thats use to cheatham do it all at 23 and come away with 10 ducks all season. good luck

Hey Whiteshoes,

Sorry I haven't checked this forum lately. I was a military freighter until 2007, but never have worked for metro.

How's your season going? I used to hunt blind 20 often, then I started hunting the blinds on the other side of the road.

Hey guys,

Sorry for the slow response. I haven't been getting my notifications like I should. The season has been a total bust so far. None of the ducks have wanted to even come close to blind 23. I had a few turn to start to work in, but always end up going toward the refuge instead. I winged one goose, but other than that I haven't had any other action. Tough season for sure. I hope something changes soon! I've enjoyed getting out there anyway, plus ya'll may have seen me carrying my 10 year old daughter out to the blind with me. She loves it even though we haven't gotten anything so far so that has been cool to get her interested in duck hunting. I just hope I get bring some in while she is there before he season is over.

BAD , worse season so far !

They need to take 23 away cause in all the years i have hunted down there it never has been good for killing ducks !

All that spot is is a spot to go and watch !

Good luck to you Firedog !!
