SALT LAKE CITY — A free hunt guided by waterfowl hunters offers an opportunity for teens to learn how to hunt ducks and geese.
The hunt for 12- to 17-year-olds is sponsored by the Division of Wildlife Resources, the Utah Conservation Officers Association, and the Utah Waterfowl Association
To participate, youths must graduate from Utah's Hunter Education program and be 12 to 17 years of age on Sept. 20, which is the day the hunt will be held. Also, by July 25, you must submit an application so you can be considered for the hunt.
The application is available at www.wildlife.utah.gov. On the website, scroll down to "Youth hunts" to access the application. Names for the hunt will be drawn from applicants. Youths should have little to no experience hunting ducks and geese.
The free, guided hunts will be held on the morning of Sept. 20 at locations in Davis, Weber and Box Elder counties.
For the hunt, youths must provide their own ammunition, shotgun, waders, hunting license and basic personal hunting gear. The guide, boat and decoys will be provided free of charge.
