They are opening it to freelancing this year. Have to be so far from the blinds. The new rules are someplace just can't post them from my phone. Check one of the Ohio waterfowl sights.

There seems to be some confusion on this. From what I was told you can't hunt from a boat. I am hearing some people say you can't even have a boat with you and that you need to walk in. I am waiting on a call back the local game Leo. The rules state that you only need to be 50 yards from the blind, which is a little to close IMO. I would post the link but it is not working at the moment.

So far this is all I found:

It is proposed that language be added requiring a permit to hunt waterfowl, except for the last 30 days of the season, on City of Akron Mogadore property, and the main body of Wendell R. LaDue Reservoir. The remainder of the LaDue property including the portion of Wendell R. LaDue reservoir west of State Route 44 will not require a permit.

The way i read this...the only open area on Ladue is west of Rt 44, rest of the lake requires the daily permit.



HUNTING, TRAPPING, & FISHING
Waterfowl hunting on LaDue Reservoir requires a controlled waterfowl hunting permit. A permit drawing is held annually prior to the season. Contact the Division of Wildlife for the drawing date. Waterfowl hunting on the portion of LaDue Reservoir west of State Route 44 is open without restriction as are all portions of the property that are outside of the “Restricted Waterfowl Hunting Zone” (see map). Furbearer trapping is permitted throughout the area, however, a permit is required to trap beaver or river otter on this or any Division-owned or managed land. Contact the Division for the permit drawing date.

Ok I found the link http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/portals/9/pdf/controlled%20hunts/2013/final%202013%202014%20LaDue%20Waterfowl%20Rules.pdf

If you look 9 and 14 are the changes. According to 14 there is no longer a controlled waterfowl area at Ladue. You can also hunt it every day in the past it was only 4 days of the week.
well it sounds like a lot of ifs and maybes on the open hunting and permits ,but if there having a drawing at the fairgrounds that would be the place to get the current info,i,ll pass on la due ,i got a private marsh to hunt,and may go to grand river later in the season...good luck all...

WOW... what a joke. 50 yds away? Have the state officials or City of Akron people lost their mind? What's the point of the drawing? Only those 10 blinds allow people to use a boat....Joke
