Wildlife Agencies to host Waterfowl Hunting Seminar

The Nevada Department of Wildlife and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service will host a waterfowl hunting seminar Saturday, Sept. 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Clark County Shooting Complex Education Center located at 11357 N. Decatur Blvd. in Las Vegas. ­ 

Seminar sessions will focus on such topics as hunting tactics and field etiquette, waterfowl identification, shotgun performance, game care and regulations. Presenters also will provide an overview of hunting opportunities on federal wildlife refuges, state wildlife management areas and other public lands in the Southern Nevada area. 

Space is limited so registration is required and can be completed online at https://register-ed.com/events/view/128031. There is no cost for the event. 

“This part of the state is often overlooked when it comes to hunting waterfowl, but we do have some good hunting opportunities for those who are interested and willing to put in the effort,” said Martin Olson, NDOW Hunter Education coordinator. “Our primary goal with this workshop is to help those who are new to waterfowl hunting get started right, but we hope to offer something of value to experienced hunters as well. In fact, we would encourage our experienced hunters to bring someone new.” 

Participants under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult. In addition, participants should be prepared to spend time outside. For assistance or more information call NDOW at 702-486-5127 extension 3500 or 3501.
