Clarifying waterfowl rules for LaDue hunt
Burton, Ohio — Some confusion has occurred over the DNR Division of Wildlife’s waterfowl hunts at LaDue Reservoir in northeast Ohio.
To hunt the lake, a permit is required to hunt waterfowl on any portion of the Ladue Reservoir east of state route 44 or the adjacent land within 50 yards of the shoreline, according to the Division of Wildlife.
Hunters can indeed field hunt around the reservoir, as long as they stay at least 50 yards from the shoreline. This is new this year.
The 2013 waterfowl hunting rules are listed here and can also be found at www.wildohio.com.
Waterfowl hunters interested in hunting the reservoir must attend a public drawing at the Geauga County Fairgrounds in Burton, which begins with registration at 5:30 p.m. The drawing is at 6 p.m.
