Youth Waterfowl Hunt September 22-23

Young waterfowl hunters and their mentors have their own special hunt September 22-23 in Idaho. Hunters ages 12 through 15 are eligible. They are to be accompanied by at least one adult per youth hunter, 18 or older, who is not authorized to shoot. A hunting license and the federal migratory game bird harvest information validation ($1.50) is required by a federal waterfowl stamp in not necessary. Ducks including mergansers, geese, snipe and coots are legal in this special hunt. All limits and regulations apply as in the regular season. These special waterfowl hunts have been authorized in Idaho by the Fish and Game Commission for several years so that young hunters can have the full attention of adult mentors as they learn the skills and traditions of waterfowl hunting.
