Duck hunting season draws near at Hudson Lake

With duck hunting season approaching, the City of Bartlesville will have drawings for 10 duck blind areas at the City-owned Hudson Lake.

The drawing will be held at 9 a.m. on Sept. 22 at the Hudson Lake boat ramp. The fee is $10, if drawn. Any leftover blinds may be purchased at City Hall, 401 S. Johnstone Ave., on a first come, first served basis.

Each duck hunter assigned a blind area must make all repairs or improvements to their blinds. No more than 30 decoys may be used at any blind area.

During duck hunting season, hunters may enter Hudson Lake one hour before shooting time, which is one-half hour before sunrise. Duck hunting ends daily at noon.
