This weekend's youth waterfowl hunt at Ballard WMA in Ballard County has been canceled due to flooding on the Ohio River.
Boatwright WMA, located to the south of Ballard WMA, will remain open under flood water conditions, said Kory Knight, wildlife management foreman for Ballard WMA. “The check-in for the Boatwright WMA youth waterfowl hunts are 4:30 a.m. each morning of the hunts at the Ballard County Highway Garage in Barlow,” he said. “These hunts will be open on a first-come, first-serve basis until the slots fill up.”
Hunting will be boat-in only and hunting parties may choose where they hunt on Boatwright WMA.
Good luck to all the youth hunters and be safe.
