Waterfowl Markers 24WM9 and 24WM10 will be open, if available, through the end of waterfowl season. HOWEVER, Hunters are not allowed to access these markers from HA 28 or the bridge to HA24I. Hunters must access these markers from HA24 through the woods or by motoring up Morrison's Creek. Hunters will not be permitted to drive into HA24, and must park at designated parking locations.

NOTICE

Waterfowl Hunters: Occupancy and Procedural Changes

** The protocol to “check in” to a waterfowl hunting location has been significantly modified to eliminate double booking of a location.  Hunters will see changes in listed occupancies and procedures to complete the check in process for a waterfowl hunting location as a single hunter or group.  The following outlines the procedure to complete the check in process for a waterfowl hunting location with annotated notes for clarification:

All waterfowl hunting locations have a maximum occupancy of 4, but only 1 hunter can sign for the location.  Your hunting party cannot exceed 4 total hunters.

  • Log into your iSportsman account
    • Click “check in”
      • Navigate acknowledgements
        • Choose exterior or interior waterfowl hunting

At this point, you should see all available asset numbers (for example, 23DB14) and “Spots Remaining” beneath the asset number.    *NOTE: While the occupancy of each waterfowl hunting location is 4, the “Spots Remaining” will now show 1. 

 iSportsman will close each waterfowl hunting location following the completion of the check in process by the first waterfowl hunter. This eliminates “double booking”. ​

  • Following your selection of an exterior or interior waterfowl hunting asset, you will be asked if there are additional participants. (Your response is always “NO.”)
    • You will then be asked if you have any guests.
      • If you are hunting alone, then you select “NO.”
      • If you are hunting as a group, then you select “YES.”

* NOTE: Only one hunter in each group can complete the check in process for waterfowl hunting locations and that hunter will add the guest(s) during this step of the process.  The hunter that completes the check in process for a waterfowl hunting location will be the primary hunter and responsible for reporting group harvest data. If you are the first to complete registration, you will be given the green check mark page informing you that you were successful.  If not, you will be returned to the choose location page. ​

  • Hunters who complete the check in process must know the permit number and last name initial of all guests within the group; 3 guest maximum.​

* NOTE: All guests are linked to the primary hunter.  When the primary hunter completes the check-out process, all guests will also be checked out.  If guests of the primary hunter desire to maintain occupancy of the waterfowl hunting location following the primary hunter completing the check-out process, a guest hunter may complete the check in process and maintain occupancy of the waterfowl hunting asset as the primary waterfowl hunter.​
