Press Release

Special Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days to be Held February 12-13

January 26, 2011

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ (ADCNR) Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF) has designated February 12-13, 2011, as Special Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days. On those two days, youth age 15 years and younger may hunt when accompanied by a licensed adult hunter age 25 years and older, or the parent of the youth. Regular waterfowl season shooting hours, bag limits, legal arms and ammunitions apply to the special days.

To participate in the hunt, youth must be accompanied by an adult supervisor. The adult supervisor, who may not hunt, must remain within arm’s length of the youth at all times. The adult supervisor may accompany up to two youth participants during the hunt, and must have a state hunting license, state and federal waterfowl stamp, and a free harvest information program stamp.

Only one firearm will be allowed per youth, and only the youth hunters will be permitted to utilize the firearm for hunting. The adult is expected to review the rules of firearm safety and hunter ethics with each youth and ensure they are followed. The firearm safety rules can be found in the hunter education section of www.outdooralabama.com.
 
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
