    Blind 3. Lots of birds at all of the blinds. Top notch place. Killed 4 mallard drakes and a gwt drake. Took my daughter and she was more of a spectator and did not shoot.

    Shot 1 mallard. That was the only bird to come back to our hole. One good thing it had a band. I like going to Mercer.

    Has anybody hunted Mercer recently? We are going on the 21 and I wanted to see how people were doing. Also would like to know if it’s starting to freeze or now. Thanks!

    We have blind 6 on the 21st. Looks to be a field hunt. Are these box blinds pit blinds? (Says blinds are provided). Anyone seeing any geese up there? Thanks! Never been there before.

    Most of Mercer is flooded corn. Sean is the guy to call up there before your hunt. He will give you all the specifics. There are pit blinds and mobile box blinds on trailers that he moves as the birds move. I’m not sure about blind six. I have hunted up there several times and will be there on the 14th. We’ve been there and shot 0 birds, and other times shot our limit. It is worth the trip.

    Sean is great guy I hunted there in November beautiful place .. they don’t do blind number this year it’s draw number so you have last pick with number 6. If there are no shows you will move up in picks . Lots of mallards in the area just have to hope they come back to the corn . He also turns the wells on and he runs two ice eaters to keep the corn open. Sean is a great guy and does everything he can to have people kill birds .. a couple days ago they killed pintails in the corn

    And all units have blinds and water to hunt over .. if you hunt the corn you hunt flooded corn if you hunt the hatchery it’s a big pond with dry field on the other side for geese or ducks. Also you should go up the day before and watch the ducks pour in to the corn across from the office it’s a beautiful sight to see in Ohio. I’ve hunted Arkansas many years and up by Erie and this place makes you feel like your on a leased hunt on private land
