The North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s Encouraging Tomorrow’s Hunters program is a primary sponsor for a free youth waterfowl hunting clinic Aug. 17 in Bismarck. Ducks Unlimited is hosting the event.
The clinic is for youth ages 16 and younger, and is held at the DU Great Plains Regional Office. Sessions include duck identification, retriever training, decoy spreads, hunting gear and duck calling. In addition, the first 20 to register age 9 and older can participate in a shooting training event at Capital City Sporting Clays.
The workshop will run from 8:30 a.m. to noon, with the shooting event scheduled for the afternoon.
Preregistration is required by contacting Jennifer Kross at 202-8896, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
