The waterfowl blind drawing for Sloughs Wildlife Management Area (WMA) will be held at Union County Middle School in Morganfield at 7 p.m. (Central time) Tuesday, Sept. 25. Registration will begin at 6 p.m. (Central time). The school is located off U.S. 60.
This drawing is for blinds on the Grassy Pond-Powell’s Lake and a portion of the Highland Creek Unit.
Blind sites on the Crenshaw and Duncan II tracts of Sloughs WMA are allotted under the regular quota hunt system. Hunters wishing to apply for a quota hunt on Slough WMA may do so during the month of September only by calling 1-877-598-2401, or by going online to the website of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources at fw.ky.gov.
Those hunters interested in participating in the Slough WMA waterfowl blind drawing must be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid 2012-2013 Kentucky hunting license, a Kentucky waterfowl permit and a federal migratory bird permit (duck stamp) at the time of the drawing.
Hunters drawn for blinds on Sloughs WMA are responsible for locating, preparing and maintaining the blind site for the duration of the 2012-2013 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 permanently 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 blinds sites open to public use if the selected hunters are not in the blinds by 30 minutes before shooting time.
