Barren River Lake Waterfowl Blind Drawing scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 7

The waterfowl blind drawing for Barren River Lake WMA in Allen and Barren counties will be 7 – 9 a.m. (Central Time), Saturday, Oct. 7.
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.
Drawing participants born after Jan. 1, 1975, must also possess their hunter education card.
Hunters interested in participating in the drawing 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 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.
The drawing will be at the Barren River Lake Corps of Engineers office, at the Barren River Lake dam off KY 252.
Hunters drawn for blinds on Barren River Lake WMAs must locate, prepare and maintain the blind site for the duration of the 2017-2018 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.
