Hunters drawn for blinds on Doug Travis, Lake Barkley, Green River, Barren River Lake or Sloughs WMAs are responsible for locating, preparing and maintaining the blind site for the duration of the 2013-2014 waterfowl seasons.

Hunters may construct a permanent blind or use a boat or portable blind, but each blind site must be permanently pinned with a permanent marker identifying permit holders for the site. Those hunters selected hold first rights for use of the blind site, but these blinds sites open to public use if the selected hunters are not in the blinds by 30 minutes before shooting time.
