If it is in northern Virginia, there are a whole different set of rules. And...if on the eastern shore of VA, there are no blind license issued. It is private property on not.
1- When I provide the GPS coordinates on the application, do they run those against a database to make sure there are no other hidden blinds nearby? (I have found quite a few blinds that are on the shore and brushed in VERY good to the point you can't barely see the plate)
The VDGIF is working on a data base for back bay from what I hear. Nothing concrete yet, but its is coming due to the nature of the blinds on the bay.
2- How do they prevent two (2) people from accidentally applying for a blind within 500 yards of each other? Will one persons application get rejected and the others go through or will they both go through and the owners will have to work something out?
This is the problem I discussed with the DGIF when they decided to change the way blind license were issued on Back Bay.
3- How long does it typically take to find out if you are approved?
As soon as you fill out the information on their website, it is approved. Get your stake out there as soon as you receive the yellow plate and sticker.

back bay is closed to any new blinds. The only ones allowed are existing locations.
