Hunters reminded to remove duck blinds by Feb. 15

CHAMPLAIN VALLEY — Waterfowl hunters who did not remove their hunting blinds from the waters of the state earlier must do so before Feb. 15 on Lake Champlain or May 15 on inland waters according to a reminder from the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.

State law requires removal of the 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 Justin Stedman. 

Stedman says wardens annually record names and addresses of blind owners and will follow up with inspections.
