The California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (CDFW) Advanced Hunter Education Program and the California Waterfowl Association will jointly sponsor a waterfowl hunting clinic on Saturday, Aug. 16 at Grizzly Ranch, near Suisun.
Designed for hunters of all skill levels, the clinic will be led by an experienced certified California Hunter Education instructor. Topics to be covered will include decoy placement, blind design, waterfowl calling, duck identification, appropriate waterfowl hunting gear, hunter safety, game care and cooking tips. Information will also be provided on hunting state wildlife areas and federal refuges.
The clinic will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The cost is $45 for adults. Youths 16 years and younger are free but must be accompanied by an adult.
CDFW’s Advanced Hunter Education Program will provide all necessary class equipment. Space is limited, so participants are asked to preregister online at www.dfg.ca.gov/huntered/advanced/waterfowl_grizzly.aspx. After registering, participants will receive an email with a map to the facility and a list of items to bring.
Grizzly Ranch is located approximately 9 miles south of Suisun City.
