Hunting clinics
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) offers clinics to teach new hunters the basics of hunting game animals. Clinics usually have two to four hours of classroom time and may include additional range activities such as sighting in rifles or patterning shotguns. Some clinics have an opportunity for a mentored hunt provided by First Hunt Foundation mentors.

For all range and hunting activities, it is your responsibility to make sure your hunting equipment is in good working order. WDFW reserves the right to do a safety check on all hunting equipment before heading onto the range or into the field.

Clinics are set up for a specific number of participants. If a parent or guardian would like to participate with their child, they will need to sign up as a participant.

Hunting clinic booklets for download
Participants of the free hunting clinics provided by WDFW receive an informative booklet to take home after clinic completion.

WDFW makes these booklets available for anyone to download and learn about hunting techniques and information as provided at each of the clinics.

I would like to take my son to the Whiskey Dick youth hunt tomorrow and got online to get some information about it. There is capacity but it says the sales are closed. Does anyone know if they cancelled it due to Smoke or Covid or are we just too late to get involved in it?

The sponsored event in the Gloyd Seeps isn't happening either.  Pheasants are being released there for the kids.
