Here's opportuity for Junior Hunters in NY. The DEC, DU, county parks and the local club are offering a Youth Waterfowl Prgram on eastern Long Island. It's Oct 28, 29 and Nov 11. It's designed for young hunters who DON'T have someone to take them duck hunting. Local experts will spend and entire day discussing and demonstrating duck ID, dogs, blinds, calls, safety, and shooting (including practice on clays). It culminates in a mentored hunt. For more info and an application or call the DEC Sportsman Education office at 631-444-0255. If you know anyone who can benefit from this, let them know.
