The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC) and Ducks Unlimited are offering seven waterfowl hunting seminars this fall.
The free seminars, which will be held from 6 to 9 p.m., are designed for new and experienced hunters. Topics will include waterfowl identification, hunting methods, decoys and calling, firearms and ammunition selection, specialty clothing, and bird cleaning and cooking.
Additional hunting information not covered in the seminar also will be available. Pre-registration is required and participants must register online.
Seminars will be held in several North Carolina locations in October and November.
This is the first time the Commission has partnered with Ducks Unlimited to provide free waterfowl hunting seminars.
The seminars also provide a forum for Ducks Unlimited to promote its Sportsmen for Tomorrow program, according to Justin Aycock, the N.C. youth and education coordinator for the North Carolina chapter of Ducks Unlimited.
“Sportsmen for Tomorrow’s goal is to promote youth involvement in the outdoors and conservation,” said Aycock. “These seminars will engage a new generation of sportsmen, so that we can pass on the waterfowl hunting and conservation tradition.”
