Dates Set for Waterfowl Blind Drawings
Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife
Frankfort, KY -. -- Dates are now set for the annual waterfowl blind drawings for season-long sites at Lake Barkley, Sloughs, Doug Travis, Green River Lake and Barren River Lake wildlife management areas (WMAs).
These are in addition to other public waterfowl hunting opportunities offered by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
Area season-long blind drawings include:
Other season-long blind drawings include:
Seasonally drawn blinds ensure waterfowl hunters selected will have a place to hunt during the entire waterfowl season. The drawings for these seasonally drawn blinds take place well before the season to allow hunters time to build blinds and make all necessary plans for the season. Hunters chosen in these random drawings have first rights to these waterfowl blind sites, but if the blinds are not used by the drawn hunters they may be occupied by any hunter.
Hunters interested in participating in the waterfowl blind drawing must be at least 18 years old and possess a valid Kentucky hunting license, a Kentucky migratory game bird/waterfowl hunting permit and a federal migratory bird permit (also known as a duck stamp) at the time of the drawing. A hunter education card is also required of any participant born after Jan. 1, 1975.
Hunters interested in participating in these drawings must also have their Harvest Information Program (HIP) confirmation number prior to the drawing. To get a confirmation number, hunters must visit the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife website at fw.ky.gov. Internet access is available at public libraries for those who do not have it.
To receive a HIP confirmation number, hunters must click the "My Profile" tab on the department's website and answer a few questions. This confirmation number provided at the completion of the survey must be written on the hunting license or Kentucky Migratory Game Bird-Waterfowl Hunting permit.
Hunters drawn for blinds on Doug Travis, Lake Barkley, Green River Lake, Barren River Lake or Sloughs WMAs must locate, prepare and maintain the blind site for the duration of the 2019-2020 waterfowl seasons. Each drawn hunter may select a co-owner of the blind site for use in the absence of the hunter drawn. The co-owner must be present at the drawing.
Hunters may construct a permanent blind or use a boat or portable blind, but each blind site must be pinned with a permanent marker identifying permit holders for the site. Those hunters selected hold first rights for use of the blind site, but these blind sites are open to public use if the selected hunters are not in the blinds by 30 minutes before shooting time.
