MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is reminding waterfowl hunters that blinds must be removed from state waters by Sunday and inland waters by May 15.

State law requires removal of the blinds to protect natural areas and to prevent boating accidents after the ice melts.

State Game Warden Colonel Jason Batchelder says removal of the blinds and any posts that may be below the surface of the ice is important because of the danger they present when boaters are on the water after the ice melts.

Batchelder says wardens have recorded the names and addresses of blind owners and will follow up with inspections.
