Im a little limited on info on this but to kinda sum it up, A fella I know whos 10-12 year old son wanted to get into duck hunting. with that being said they went to Paris in August for the blind drawing, drew a blind (not sure which one but dont think it was a "hot" one) they have done some work on it the last couple weekends, probably some good father son time almost like building a clubhouse. As yall know early teal/wooduck opened this weekend. They get to there blind only to find that some jerk or most likely several jerks had set it on fire and pretty much burnt it to the ground!! I used to duck hunt alot and know this stuff happens every year but knowing it happened to a great guy who was trying to give his son the opprotunity to shoot a duck or two just chaps my @$$! Anyway, I just wanted to vent and share my disappointment with how some people that consider themselves big almighty outdoorsman are really just scum of the earth. As for all you good fellas reading this, thanks for doing right and if any Paris locals might have any insight on this fill me in or if someones got an empty spot for a youngster this year let me know as well. I sure hope that karma gets those losers and thanks for reading.

That ticks me off just reading this. I hope someone takes this boy hunting and he kills a hundred ducks. Good luck to him.

That makes me madder then anything. Alot of people are poor sports when they dont get drawn.

We were teal hunting yesterday and had 4 mallards land across the lake from us and 2 guys tried shooting them but didnt kill any.

Its things like this that make wonder about some people who call themselves sportsmen.

If i was in west tn i would take the boy hunting with us.

Spoiled, over-grown, chest pounding SOB's are part of the reason I stopped going to the Big Sandy draw.... people being immature and burning blinds, slashing tires at the boat ramp/parking areas, sky-busting, stealing decoys.... I have no use for those kind of "hunters"....

I hate it happened for that guy and his son.... probably just some jealous POS that wanted to get even.... maybe even someone who wanted to buy it and father wasn't willing to sell.... who knows. Those kinds of "hunters" are ruining the sport for others. Hope the guilty party gets theirs at some point.

One thing I've noticed going on my 6th year of duck hunting... there is a much higher percentage of A-holes that shoot ducks than any other hunting group.

About the blind, they should make sure it wasn't burned by authorities first????

authorities arent going to burn a blind this late in the year. When they burn them, its a few weeks before the draw
