The numerous marshes in the archipelago and around Lake Saint-Pierre are home to large numbers of ducks. Hunting is therefore a very popular activity in the region. In the fall, many blinds can be seen, carefully camouflaged among the wetland vegetation. Some hunters use their boat as a blind, covering it with wetland plants to pass unobserved. This type of boat blind is known locally as a "caboche."
