The California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (CDFW) Advanced Hunter Education Program and the Hunter Education Instructor Association of Southern California are jointly sponsoring a waterfowl hunting clinic on Saturday, Sept. 27. The clinic will be held at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area in Riverside County.

Designed for hunters of all skill levels, the clinic will be led by experienced certified California Hunter Education instructors. Topics to be covered will include concepts of decoy placement, blind design, ballistics, calling, duck identification, dog considerations, gear, game care, cooking tips and safety.

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_sanjacinto.aspx. After registering, participants will receive an email with a map to the facility and a list of items to bring.

San Jacinto Wildlife Area is located approximately 8 miles east of Riverside.
