FRANKFORT, Ky. Three new seasonal blind locations for waterfowl hunting at Doug Travis Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Carlisle County will not be available for hunting.

The blind locations were initially added to the Town Creek Moist Soil Unit during the August 2015 meeting of the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission. This area had been designated as a waterfowl resting area in previous years and had not been hunted.

Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission members at a Nov. 6 special called commission meeting voted to maintain the waterfowl resting area at the location and remove the blind locations. The Town Creek Moist Soil Unit will not be open to any waterfowl hunting.

Hunters who were initially assigned to the new blinds were shifted to other locations on the WMA.
