50 YEARS AGO: The Stanislaus County Parks Commission issued two revisions to the county duck blind ordinance. The first stated that a hunter could not put up a duck blind within 200 yards of one that was already established, unless they had approval from the owner. The second stated that a hunter could shoot fowl from a boat without paying a $25 duck blind permit fee, provided he or she removed the boat from the water at the end of the day.
