Ducks 101 -- Free Waterfowl Hunting Talk on September 5
CONCORD, N.H. -- Discover how rewarding waterfowling in New Hampshire can be at a free talk called "Ducks 101" on Wednesday, September 5, 2007, from 7- 8:30 p.m. at New Hampshire Fish and Game Department headquarters on Hazen Drive in Concord. The session features Ray Jackson of Buck Gardner Calls and Garret Booth of Grey's Outfitting. No pre-registration is needed - just show up and enjoy!
The session will cover decoys and decoy setups, duck and goose calling, bird identification, retriever training and the use of a dog in general, as well as game preparation and basic equipment needed for waterfowl hunting. Participants will also learn about different methods of waterfowl hunting such as hunting from blinds or from watercraft, field and water hunting, and tactics for "pass and jump" shooting.
Ray Jackson is an avid waterfowl hunter and is on the Pro/Field Staff for Buck Gardner Calls. He has pursued waterfowl for more than 30 years and enjoys bringing waterfowl hunting to new hunters and children.
Garret Booth is a licensed New Hampshire Hunting Guide, and is the owner of Grey's Outfitting, a guiding service based in southern New Hampshire. He guides both upland and waterfowl hunts, as well as training hunting dogs, and has done so for fifteen years.
The talk is part of a series of free Wednesday evening hunting talks being offered by Fish and Game this fall featuring hunting experts and Fish and Game biologists. "Come pick up some strategies and get set for some great hunting this fall," says Mark Beauchesne, who is coordinating the talks for Fish and Game.
