YOUTH WATERFOWL HUNT SET
FOR SEPT. 27 IN NORTHERN NEVADA
The daily possession limit for youth participating in the Youth Waterfowl Hunt is seven ducks including not more than 2 hen mallards, 1 pintail, 1 canvasback, 4 scaup, and 2 redheads; 3 Canada and white-fronted geese, and 25 coots and moorhens. For information on identifying waterfowl in the field, look for "Ducks at a Distance," an identification guide that is available free of charge at all regional Nevada Department of Wildlife offices.
"This is a great opportunity for waterfowl hunters to get out with their children in a healthy way," said Chris Vasey, Western Region Outdoor Education Coordinator.
"Our youth are our future leaders, hunters and sportsmen. It is important to encourage them not only to be safe and successful, but to also to understand and respect hunting ethics and the traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation. Once young people see the outdoors as a fun and vital part of their lives, they can begin making their own treasured memories and applying the skills, ethics and respect that will be passed on to future generations."
