The California Department of Fish and Game’s (DFG) Advanced Hunter Education Program is offering a waterfowl hunting clinic on Oct. 29 in northern California. The clinic will be held at the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Complex from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This clinic is for hunters of all skill levels.
Two experienced instructors, DFG Assistant Chief Mike Carion and DFG Warden Aaron Freitas, will host this exciting clinic. Topics include gun safety, decoy placement, blind design, ballistics, calling, duck identification, dog considerations, equipment, game care and cooking tips.
The information offered in this comprehensive clinic should be useful for anyone who wants to successfully hunt waterfowl in the Klamath Basin. The clinic typically attracts both first-time waterfowlers and experienced hunters.
The cost of the clinic is $45 for adults. Youths 16 years and younger are free, but must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited and participants must register in advance at www.dfg.ca.gov/huntered/advanced. After registering, participants will receive an e-mail with a map to the facility and a list of items to bring.
