From the Nevada Department of Wildlife:
Flood waters that destroyed parts of Interstate 15 and left much of Moapa Valley underwater also caused significant damage to the Overton Wildlife Management Area. Though it will take officials with the Nevada Department of Wildlife some time to assess the full extent of the damage, their early estimates are that it may take years to complete the needed repairs.
With the 2014 hunting seasons on the horizon that is bad news for southern Nevada’s waterfowl hunters who can expect to find reduced hunting opportunity on the management area when seasons open later this fall. Generally, the area boasts more than 40 hunting blinds located where they provide hunters with a variety of hunting opportunities, including ponds, flooded seasonal wetlands and fields. Due to the flooding, however, there will now be fewer blinds available come opening day.
