Forwarding from our friends at the McNary and Umatilla NWR
I hope you are doing well and staying safe! I just wanted to send out our updated check station procedures in case some of your members have questions or concerns. Please share!
As the waterfowl hunting season quickly approaches, please review the following updates at the McNary NWR Headquarters Unit and Umatilla NWR McCormack Unit and associated Hunter Check Stations. These changes are in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and will allow us to adhere to federal, state, and local public health authority guidance. Public safety is the driving force behind our actions as we endeavor to ensure a safe hunting season.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant blinds will only be issued to hunters with a disability. Three additional guests are permitted.
The Hunter Check Stations will close at 8:00 a.m. and will not reopen to issue new blinds or to allow morning hunters to switch blinds. Afternoon hunting will remain open for individuals who stay in their assigned blinds, and upland hunters. Waterfowl hunters will continue to have access to the first-come first-served blinds and free roam opportunities on other units subject to the regulations for each unit. See the individual unit Tear Sheets for more information.
One hunter per party will choose a blind from the Check Station Attendant and pay for all members of the party. All other hunters will remain in their vehicles and will not need to provide identification to the check station attendant.
Checks or exact change ONLY. No change will be issued at the Hunter Check Station. Fees will be placed in a fee collection box.
The lottery winners and standby representatives will form two separate lines, clearly marked at the check station. Lottery draw winners will move through the line in order when called by the Check Station Attendant. The standby representative will place their name on the standby list and wait to be called by the Check Station Attendant after all lottery winners have been issued blinds.
Hunters will fill out their own permit card with the names of everyone in their party and the Check Station Attendant will stamp the permit card.
There will not be a volunteer supported blind brush-up day this season.
Adherence to these changes will allow FWS to follow state guidelines and continue to offer a high-quality waterfowl hunt for the public. We will continue to monitor the current state and county regulations, and CDC guidance regarding COVID-19. We may adjust waterfowl hunt procedures as necessary to stay in compliance with any updated guidance.
We encourage all visitors to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 by following routine precautions, including washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Hunters must wear a face covering when interacting with the Check Station Attendant, and when you cannot maintain six feet of physical distance from others. Visit only if you are feeling healthy, and stay home if you are sick or showing any symptoms such as fever, cough, or fatigue.
I look forward to a safe and successful hunting season.
