River and Reservoir Blinds
The Department holds a drawing every other year for approximately 90 blind sites on the Mississippi River in St. Charles, Lincoln and Pike counties. Successful applicants are required to build a blind that meets safety standards and are allowed to keep the blind for two years. Other hunters may hunt from these blinds if they are not occupied by 6 a.m.
In addition, many of the reservoirs managed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (COE) have annual drawings for blind locations or a time when hunters are allowed to claim blind locations for the upcoming fall. In many of these locations, hunters also are able to hunt from unoccupied sites after a certain time. For more details, call the COE office at the reservoir you want to hunt.
