Ballard and Boatwright both have lotteries for their blinds, Biatwright has public walk in and boating area. If you do not have a scheduled blind then you get in line to get the unclaimed ones. You will go to the Ballard office first. If your not drawn there the buggie on down the road to Boatwright office, aka a parking lot, and put in for those blinds. In the first part of the season and weekend you run a bigger risk of not getting drawn for any blinds. If I was coming from a long way off I would make sure I had a blind. It's a few buck to put in for each set of dates but I would put in for several days and get my buddies to do the same. Don't worry about which blind to choose, when you get there just ask the workers which blinds have been doing well, they will know. Last thing you will have a card to fill out each day to say how many people hunted and how many birds were harvested. Don't forget to turn that in.

Boatwright is a daily draw only. No scheduled blinds. Ballard has a standby draw for people who don't show up plus any additional blinds they have open. There is several other places nearby to hunt as well. Boatwright is an experience, that's for sure. I like it there.
