NW Chapter Youth Hunts

The WWA NW Chapter is once again sponsoring youth waterfowl hunts at various locations in north Puget Sound.

This is an excellent opportunity to mentor youth under 16 years and a great way to introduce youth to the hunting experience and heritage. Mentors play a pivotal role in developing hunters. That first hunt can mark the beginning of a lifelong passion for the outdoors and a commitment to wildlife conservation. If you’re new to Waterfowl hunting we can set you up with experienced support at the blind. All are welcome!

Hunt Dates: Sept. 22nd and 23rd

Rick Skiba our chapter Youth Hunt Coordinator has secured hunts at these locations:

Edison Hunt Club. 2 Pit Blinds adjacent to a fresh water pond. Morning and afternoon hunts. 1/2 hour before sunrise until noon and from 1 pm till sunset.

The Nature Conservancy in Port Susan. 2 – 3 Dike blinds. Afternoon hunts. Due to low morning tides we will hunt from 1 pm until sunset.

Swinomish Gun Club. 9 blinds. Afternoon hunts. Due to low morning tides we will hunt from 1 pm until sunset.

Reservations are required. First come-first served. Please contact Rick Skiba reskiba@msn.com (360) 387-2225 or Rick Billieu, rgbillieu@frontier.com (360) 653-8571.
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Recently moved to Camano Island from southern California and looking for an open seat to hunt waterfowl.  I  have a little bit of experience but not much.  I also have waders, a few decoys, and a young but eager and talented dog.  I can't call and I don't have a boat.
For the early part of the season, I'm primarily interested in day hunts on the west side as I have a lot of travel planned.  I will be returning from my Wyoming elk hunt in late November and I'll have more time for waterfowl after that.

I'm going to hunt the Dungeness estuary with or without anyone else.  I've been in the NOP for a while but never hunted that area for ducks, et al. I've got a choco lab that I want to introduce as well.

ETA: I have 2 non-hunting teen girls that paddle kayaks, dog wrangle, bear ammo, pack out and clean ducks (on request), and provide other high energy help.

I went to the NE chapter that meets at the Conway fire hall and joined tonight. I will be taking my daughter out and they have room for 10 more youth.  Im looking forward to sitting in a blind at one of the gun clubs that donated access... One that Ive drooled at when Ive been scouting. Just tell Rick if you youth has chest /hip waders or just rubber boots. Each blind is supplied with about a dozen decoys, Im going to bring some of my own to supplement.
