DU plans treat for youth waterfowlers Sept. 21

HUNTING — Ducks Unlimited is offering a barbecue lunch for youth waterfowl hunters and their parents/chaperones at Mar Don Resort, Potholes Reservoir, on Youth Waterfowl Hunt Day, Saturday, Sept. 21, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Each of the first 48 youth, who is registered online ($5 fee) on or before Sept. 19 – will receive a bbq lunch,  a “duck hunter’s bucket”, Haydel duck call and lanyard, and a gun tool, all donated by Colonel Tom O’Dell, of Moses Lake.  DU has donated a duck identification poster, DU duck call and cap for each young hunter, as well, while Kraft Foods has donated a snack pack for each youth.

Please visit the DU website,  , or, the specific address is: to

Sign up here.

The fee is $10 for the parent/chaperone, who accompany the youth, and they will be fed, too!

An anonymous donor is buying a Greenwing (youth) membership for each of the first 48 who sign up.

Mike Nilsen, WA State DU Chairman-Elect is coordinating the event.  Mike is a career Navy NCO, who is working with Col. O’Dell to make this happen for our young hunters.

Sept. 21-22 is the special youth only waterfowl and upland game bird hunting season, which gives hunters under 16 years of age a jump start on the general seasons that open later this fall. Non-hunting adults at least 18 years of age must accompany young hunters. Check WDFW’s Migratory Waterfowl and Upland Game Seasons pamphlet for details.
