Young hunters needed for waterfowl camp at Pintail Slough
Young hunters ages 12-17 who want to learn about waterfowl hunting can sign up for the annual Pintail Slough Junior Waterfowl Camp.
The camp is sponsored by the Arizona Game and Fish Department and other partners.
The camp is Jan. 3-5 at the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge.
The deadline to register is Dec. 13. The event is limited to 20 hunters, and each must be accompanied by an adult. No prior experience is necessary, according to AZG&FD.
Young hunters will learn to identify, hunt and field-dress waterfowl before going hunting in the Pintail Slough duck blinds.
“If you aren’t getting out, you’re missing out,” said Cody Johnston, wildlife manager for Region 3. “This is a great opportunity for parents to get outside with their kids and enjoy the outdoors.”
For an application contact Elise Theel at email@example.com, or call AZGFD’s regional office in Kingman at 928-692-7700.
A refundable $40 registration fee is required. Participants will be chosen through a random draw and notified by email or telephone.
