Clinton gains waterfowl area

January 22, 2008 at 08:17 AM

Central Illinois has picked up another waterfowl hunting area thanks to the work of Ducks Unlimited and the Illinois Duck Stamp fund to develop the Salt Creek Waterfowl Management Area on the northeast end of Clinton Lake.

The project was completed last year and hunting is expected to start sometime next fall at the Salt Creek site, which is located on the Clinton Lake State Recreation Area in DeWitt County 3 miles southwest of Farmer City. The project cost $143,927, of which $100,000 came from the state duck stamp fund. Other funding was provided by Ducks Unlimited and the Clinton Lake Waterfowl Association.

The primary objectives of the 40.5-acre wetland is: 1. to provide spring and fall migration habitat for waterfowl and other migratory birds; 2. to improve Clinton Lake’s water quality; 3. and to provide breeding habitat for wood ducks and other wetland wildlife.

That said, there will also be hunting available. One innovative idea being discussed is to hold a drawing at the site. Those who show up will put their names in a tumbler, just as they do at annual blind drawings at other state sites. Only instead of receiving a blind for the entire year, those who are drawn will pick a single hunting date.

We’ll have more details later in the summer as waterfowl season approaches. For now it’s nice to know that hunters in central Illinois will have another walk-in hunting area.
