YANKTON, SD – The Gavins Point Project would like to remind hunters that deadlines for removing tree stands and duck blinds are coming soon.

All tree stands on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Gavins Point Project lands must be removed no later than February 15 each year. This includes all Corps managed lands around Lewis and Clark Lake, Lake Yankton, Audubon Bend and North Alabama Bend areas in Nebraska and South Dakota.

Permitted duck blinds are required to be removed no later than April 30. Personal property, including blinds, tree stands and other personal property left on Government lands beyond these dates is subject to impound/seizure by USACE Park Rangers, and citations (fines) may be issued to violators. The Gavins Point Project asks that the public removes their personal property on these dates to help protect the natural resources on project lands.

For more information, contact the Lewis and Clark Visitor Center at 402-667-2546.
