For most of Nevada, the Youth Waterfowl Hunt is scheduled for this Saturday, Sept. 27. Adults are not allowed to hunt on this day, only youths ages 15 and younger. The youth must be accompanied by an adult who is at least 18-years-old, and all hunting laws and regulations must be followed. The Youth Waterfowl Hunt is in effect for all counties but Clark and Lincoln. Those counties will hold their Youth Waterfowl Day on Jan. 31, 2004.

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.

"With youngsters today becoming so dependent on television and video games, many of them have never been exposed to the outdoors. By offering them special opportunities, they not only apply the hunting safety rules and information they learned in hunter education, but they are able to find out for themselves what wildlife habitat is all about and apply skills to begin to provide for themselves.

"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."
