Free Workshops for Beginning Upland Game and Waterfowl Hunters Offered in Nevada
Waterfowl and upland game species like chukar and quail provide many opportunities for a hunt close to home in Nevada. Beginners can learn practical skills and tips at workshops to be held this Thursday, September 25 beginning at 5:45 the new Sportsman’s Warehouse in Henderson. The Nevada Department of Wildlife has gathered together hunting experts and will provide practical tools to help beginners have the most successful experience possible.
Upland game is the focus of the 5:45 workshop, where hunters can learn where to go and valuable “how to” information on hunting the challenging and elusive chukar as well as other species.
At 7:30 Brock Perry, representing Ducks Unlimited and a duck calling pro, will share his extensive knowledge on how and where to hunt ducks in Nevada.
Nevada Department of Wildlife educators and game wardens will also be on hand to answer questions and share a wealth of educational materials.
The workshops are sponsored by a National Shooting Sports Foundation Hunting Heritage Partnership Grant aimed at getting hunters afield.
