Public drawing for waterfowl blinds at LaDue Reservoir

AKRON, OH – The ODNR Division of Wildlife and the City of Akron invites waterfowl hunters to participate in a special drawing on Thursday, September 19, 2013 for hunting opportunities at LaDue Reservoir.
Registration at the Geauga County Fairgrounds will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the drawing will follow promptly at 6:00 p.m. There is no fee for applying. Hunters will place registration cards in a drum, names will be drawn for available dates and blinds, and first drawn will receive first choice. Successful applicants must be present when drawn to be eligible.
Each applicant must bring a 2013-2014 hunting license. There are ten (10) blind sites available and a calendar will be available showing all available hunting days for the 2013-2014 waterfowl season. In addition to the drawing for the regular waterfowl season, a separate youth only drawing will be held for the two day youth season. A maximum of three persons may hunt each day and while the hunting partners may differ each day, the permit holder must always be present.
Permits will be issued for a period of one week and may only be used for the blind location chosen. Special note: successful applicants will be permitted to hunt every day for one week and all day (during legal hours) on the dates listed on the permit. Hunters will be required to submit a survey at the end of their permitted hunting period.
Only temporary blinds and electric boats motors are acceptable and all other motors are prohibited.
