Colorado Parks and Wildlife will offer a clinic for duck hunters at 6 p.m., Dec. 14 at the Pueblo Hunter Safety Building at 2500 W. Mesa Ave.
The clinic is a way for waterfowl hunters to learn about hunting regulations, duck identification and hunting tactics – all with the goal of increasing duck hunting success.
“This class is designed for the novice duck hunter who wants to learn to become more successful,” said Allen Vitt, a Parks and Wildlife biologist. “The clinic has a lot to offer in terms of understanding waterfowl habits and behavior, and how to make sure you have a safe, successful, legal hunt.”
Our goal is to help waterfowl hunters enjoy their experience and improve their success, he added.
In the Central Flyway portion of Colorado, there are now three duck season zones. Hunters should pay close attention to hunting dates, as they can be different in each zone in the regular season for ducks, coots and mergansers, as well as the youth waterfowl.
In the southeast zone – including the area east of I-25 and south of I-70 and all of El Paso, Pueblo, Huerfano and Las Animas counties – the season dates are Oct. 24 – Jan. 27, 2013.
The class size is limited to 30. Hunters interested in attending should RSVP by calling 719-561-5300.
