Okaw Bluff goose, teal hunting

September 02, 2010 at 08:02 AM

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announces that eight waterfowl hunting blinds will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Okaw Bluff Wetlands during the 2010 early goose and teal seasons. 

Hunting dates and hunting hours for early goose season are September 1-15, 2010 from 1/2 hour before sunrise to sunset.  Teal season is September 4 – 19, 2010 and legal hunting hours are sunrise to sunset.

Most of the blinds will accommodate two hunters and one observer.

One of the blinds is designed for hunters with disabilities (Blind 3) and another one is a group blind capable of holding four hunters (Blind 10).  Due to the limited size of the area, all hunting shall take place from the blinds and be in accordance with posted restrictions. 

For the third year in a row, the levees were overtopped and the blinds were underwater for months and have not been cleaned out or repaired.  The blinds will be cleaned, repaired, and brushed as soon as time and resources allow.  High water also eliminated 12 acres of corn.  Smartweed that was sown in the units last season survived the high water. 

For further information or if you would like to volunteer to help us with the cleanup and repair the Okaw Bluff Wetland hunting blinds please contact Park Ranger Brock Key or Natural Resources Specialist Lee Mitchell at the Lake Shelbyville Project Office at (217) 774-2513.
