Wildlife Agencies to Host Waterfowl Hunting Workshop

The Nevada Department of Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will host a waterfowl hunting workshop Sept. 16, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Clark County Shooting Complex Education Center, 11357 N. Decatur Blvd. in Las Vegas.

Free workshop sessions will focus on such topics as hunting tactics and field etiquette, waterfowl identification, shotgun performance, game care and regulations. Representatives of the two agencies also will provide an overview of hunting opportunities in the Southern Nevada area. 

“This part of the state is often overlooked when it comes to hunting waterfowl, but we do have some excellent 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. Space is limited so registration is required and can be completed online at ndowlicensing.com. In addition, participants should be prepared to spend time outside. For assistance or more information call NDOW at 702-486-5127, ext. 3500 or 3501.
