Sign up now for upcoming waterfowl hunting workshops in La Grande, Coquille

October 10, 2023

SALEM, Ore.—Spots are still open in two waterfowl hunting workshops aimed at adult hunters coming up in La Grande (Oct. 28-29) and Coquille/Myrtle Point (Nov. 18-19)

The two-day weekend workshops cost just $50 plus the cost of licenses. (Participants need a hunting license, waterfowl validation, free HIP validation and federal waterfowl stamp—see license costs here). Find more information about these and other workshops at

The first day covers the basics of waterfowl biology and duck calling in the morning, followed by shotgun shooting practice in the afternoon. The second day is a mentored hunt at one of ODFW's wildlife areas (Ladd Marsh and Coquille) where participants will put everything learned on day one into action from a duck blind. 

Sign up online (and purchase needed licenses) via ODFW's licensing system under the Class/Workshop category. Workshop spaces are limited.

Waterfowl hunting is a great opportunity for first-time hunters due to the long season and ability to hunt throughout the state.
