Do you have a young hunter in the household? Perhaps it’s time to get them out for the Idaho Department of Fish Game’s youth waterfowl hunt tomorrow, Sept. 29. Young hunters will need to secure a youth or small game license, $7.25, with a federal migratory bird permit, $1.75, prior to the free hunt day.

There may still be time to enroll in tomorrow’s free clinic at Heyburn State Park. The Idaho Department of Fish Game is soliciting young sportsmen and women interested in learning to hunt waterfowl and will sponsor a clinic at Heyburn State Park, northwest of St. Maries at the south end of Lake Coeur d’Alene.

Participants and a guardian will have the opportunity to spend morning hunting with an experienced waterfowl hunter at the clinic. You won’t just watch, you will be part of the action.

Following a morning hunt, participants will be treated to a free barbeque and skills clinic. The idea is to expose youth to a quality hunting experience and provide their guardian with enough training to repeat the experience independently.
It’s open to hunters 15 and younger. Young hunters will need to be accompanied by an adult and bring a shotgun and ammunition.

Participation will be by advanced reservation and space is limited to 25 participants per clinic. Call JJ Teare at the Fish and Game Panhandle Region office 208-769-1414 to reserve a spot and obtain additional details.

This is going to be a fun event and it’s free. Don’t miss out!
