Waterfowl Hunting Blinds Must Be Removed

Waterfowl Hunting Blinds Must Be Removed From Lake Champlain

 

Waterfowl hunters who have not already removed their hunting blinds from the waters of the state must do so. The deadline is February 15 on Lake Champlain or May 15 on inland waters according to a reminder from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.

Vermont state law requires removal of these blinds before these deadlines to protect natural areas and to prevent boating accidents after the ice melts.

“Removal of the blinds and any posts that may be below the surface of the ice is important because of the danger they present when boaters are on the water in the spring,” said State Game Warden Colonel Jason Batchelder.

Batchelder says game wardens have recorded the names and addresses of blind owners and will follow-up with inspections to insure they have been removed.
