Duck blind drawings set for Sept. 17
Though it’s still hot, it’s not too early to mark the calendar for Sept. 17 when a number of drawings will be held for permits to construct seasonal blinds on several lakes across Oklahoma.

Registration and drawings for duck blinds will be held for Ft. Gibson, Eufaula, Webbers Falls, Waurika, Canton and Ft. Supply, lakes.

Registration and drawings for duck blinds at Fort Gibson, Eufaula and Webbers Falls will take place at the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation’s field office in Porter, located between Wagoner and Muskogee on Hwy. 69. Registration for Fort Gibson will take place at 7 a.m., with drawings to follow at 8 a.m. For blinds at Eufaula, registration will begin at 9:30 a.m., with drawings at 10:30 a.m. Registration will begin at noon for Webbers Falls, with drawings at 1 p.m.

Drawings for Waurika blinds will be held at 9 a.m. at the Corps of Engineers office located at the Waurika Lake Dam.

Duck blind permits for Canton Lake will be issued from 10 a.m. to noon at the Overlook Café on the west end of Canton Lake dam. Permits will be issued for Canton Lake on a first-come, first-served basis.


Hunters also may be drawn for duck blinds at Ft. Supply. Drawings will take place at 9 a.m. at the Wildlife Department’s northwest region field office in Woodward.


Applicants for permanent blind permits must be at least 16 years of age and possess all valid hunting licenses, signed stamps and permits as required for hunting waterfowl during the waterfowl season, unless exempt. Additionally, they need a valid Harvest Information Program (HIP) Permit. Applicants must be present at the drawings to be eligible.


Waterfowl hunting blinds constructed on Corps of Engineers and Bureau of Reclamation reservoirs are classified in two categories: temporary blinds (constructed for only one hunt and removed at the end of the hunt) and permanent blinds (constructed for seasonal use). No permit is required for temporary blinds.
