The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife would like to invite you and/or your family to attend this exciting new Waterfowling workshop.  This workshop is also open to those enrolled in the Mentored Youth Hunt Program.

In this workshop you will have a classroom session on waterfowl hunting (decoy placement, calling, personal gear, dog handling, and bird identification) and a firearm safety orientation before heading out to the range for hands on safety and target practice, increasing your shotgun shooting skills.

Following the range practice we will divide up and each group will be paired with a volunteer guide and dog for an actual waterfowl hunt on Sauvie Island. This is a one day workshop designed for the beginner and/or lapsed hunter. Lunch and all equipment (including dogs, guns, eye protection, ear protection, ammunition, and waders) will be provided; you will need to have on your person a valid Oregon hunting license, State waterfowl validation, the free migratory hunter information program (HIP), and a federal waterfowl stamp to participate in this hunt.
