Thirty years ago, Franks Tract was open to free-lance duck hunting. During the early season we periodically pulled my Boston Whaler up to the berm and hunted ducks – mostly mallards. We killed a few, but the action was slow (only for those who were really motivated). Eventually the State took more control over the hunting and now it is strictly managed as a State Recreation Area.

I haven’t heard many reports lately about the quality of the hunting, but I frequently hear shooting from the direction of these blinds. Here’s a link that will provide information about drawing a permit for a blind on Franks Tract.
