Handicapped duck hunters soon will be able to target their prey comfortably at the Duck Creek Conservation Area. Last spring, the Missouri Department of Conservation began construction on a handicap-accessible duck blind. Though it needs more camouflage, the blind is complete and ready for duck season. The structure took about six weeks to build. Manager of the Conservation Area Keith Cordell says they want to help all people discover nature, and this accessible duck blind is part of making that happen. The Americans with Disabilities Act-approved blind is in the south central corner of position 16 in Unit A. A paved walkway starts at a parking pad and descends toward the blind, which reaches into the pool. Cordell said there has been a demand for an ADA blind for some time. One other location in Stoddard County — Otter Slough — has an ADA blind. To make a reservation call the Southeast Regional office at (573) 290-5730 on or after Thursday.
