Applications Accepted for McClintic WMA Duck Blinds Through September 8

Waterfowl hunters who wish to hunt from a blind in the controlled waterfowl hunting zone of McClintic Wildlife Management Area (WMA), located near Point Pleasant, must submit their applications by September 8, 2006, 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 to the handicapped waterfowl hunter. Applicants are selected randomly by drawing and will be notified if selected. Hunters may apply by visiting the DNR website: www.wvdnr.gov under hunting or by printing the following information on a postcard (24-cents postage):  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 2 through October 14, 2006. Persons not selected may appear at the McClintic 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 2006-2007 West Virginia Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations for more complete information. Regulations will be available at DNR offices in late August and are also available on the DNR Web site.
