This fall 2009 the Tishomingo NWR in conjunction with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation is proud to kick off the hunting season with a new addition that will enable handicap hunter's to enjoy their goose hunting experience more than ever before.  Since this attempt has not been previously made the planning of the blind was very extensive.  This unique blind has a 9' by 15' concrete foundation with 3' walls and an open overhead range, which will entice hunters with special needs to embrace the outdoors in a whole new way.  To further improve the access a concrete 30' by 18' vehicle parking pad and gravel pathway to the blind are also being constructed.  The funds for this project were collected through recreation fees amongst national wildlife refuges.  Although the season is not yet underway the local community is already boasting about this modern configuration.
