Applications Accepted for McClintic WMA Duck Blinds until September 8

Waterfowl hunters interested in hunting from a blind within the controlled waterfowl hunting zone of McClintic Wildlife Management Area (WMA), located near Point Pleasant, must submit their applications by September 7, 2007, according to David T. McClung, Wildlife Manager for the Division of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Section.

Hunting is by permit only on a portion of McClintic WMA during the October split of waterfowl season. Hunters are assigned a blind, free of charge, and allowed to bring one guest. An accessible blind is available for use by physically challenged waterfowl hunters. Applicants are selected randomly by drawing and will be notified if selected. Hunters may apply by visiting the Division of Natural Resources’ Web site: www.wvdnr.gov and checking under hunting or by printing the following information on a postcard: name, address, telephone number, and the day(s) they desire to hunt. Cards should be addressed to: DUCK BLINDS, Route 1 Box 484, Point Pleasant, WV 25550-9734.

The controlled waterfowl hunt is October 1 through October 13, 2007. Persons not selected may appear at the McClintic WMA office on the morning of each day’s hunt to apply for a blind left vacant by selected hunters who do not show up to hunt. These vacancies are filled on a first come basis. Those not selected for a blind may hunt waterfowl on McClintic WMA outside the controlled hunting zone. Consult the 2007-2008 West Virginia Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations for more complete information. Regulations are available from Division of Natural Resources’ offices and Web site.
