Waterfowl Hunter Training for Youth
Ducks Unlimited Oceanside and the Parksville, Qualicum Fish and Game Club are again offering Waterfowl hunter training to encourage youth to take up the sport. Ducks Unlimited Canada have developed a training program that gives young people a practical overview of hunter safety, ethics and skills needed to participate in the sport. A field hunt will be conducted with adult mentors assigned to each youth to give a real life experience of waterfowl hunting. The program is timed to take advantage of the provisions of the hunting regulations that allow youth to experience hunting, without obtaining a hunting licence, migratory permit or passing the CORE hunter safety training, during Waterfowl Heritage Days.
There is a registration fee of $25.00 for each trainee.
If you have children or know of (boys or girls) between the ages of 12 and 17 who would like to undertake the training, please contact:
