Corps of Engineers announces
rules for stands, blinds
n Effective this month, Arkabutla Lake, Sardis Lake, Enid Lake and Grenada Lake will no longer allow deer stands to be left overnight on government property, and duck blind permits will no longer be issued.
Past practices associated with the deer stand policy led many users to the mistaken conclusion that a given area of public property was reserved by the deer stand owners. This was never the intent of the deer stand policy
Portable hunting stands, climbing devices, steps, or blinds that are not nailed or screwed into trees may be used. These portable hunting stands, climbing devices, steps, or blinds must be occupied at all times. Fixed tower stands and shooting houses are prohibited. Stands or structures that are found in violation of this policy shall be considered an unauthorized structure and will be subject to summary removal or impoundment by project personnel.
Duck blind permits will no longer be issued for project lands and waters. Only temporary/portable blinds for waterfowl hunting will be permitted. All blinds and associated equipment (decoys, camouflage, etc.) must be removed from project lands on a daily basis and may not remain on the project overnight.
Blinds or structures that are found in violation of this policy shall be considered an unauthorized structure and will be subject to summary removal or impoundment by project personnel. Blinds that use nails, screws or spikes to attach to trees are strictly prohibited. Placement of duck blinds shall not be used as a means of reserving a favorite hunting location.
Multiple past instances of conflicts between deer stand owners or duck blind users and/or other project users resulted in a number of serious incidents. In many instances, policy abuse also resulted in frequent damage to government property. This new policy is being instituted to provide an equal opportunity to all project users and to also provide a safer environment for the visiting public.
