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.

Youth Hunts Sept 26th Get the kids in the Blinds signup now! On September 26th the WWA‐NW Chapter is sponsoring youth waterfowl hunts at locations in north Puget Sound. Our youth hunt coordinator Rick Skiba has secured hunt locations with private land owners.   We'll be running morning hunts, half hour before sunrise to noon and from 1 pm till sunset.  All youth will re-ceive a new Duck Call, Whistle and  lanyard. Reservations are required.  First come-first served.  Contact Rick  Skiba, reskiba @msn.com or(360) 387-2225 or Rick Billieu, rgbillieu@front‐ ier.com or  (360) 653-8571


I took my kid to this even the past 2 years and i can say the properties that Rick Skiba has lines up are some of the most phenomenal private gun clubs that most people will never set foot on.  I Joined WWA because i was so impressed with this outreach program. If you have a kid that wants to hunt, and you dont have a bunch of experience, gear, or locations this is a must sign up for event. I cannot speak highly enough of Skibas work on this each year!

All of the Slots for the youth hunt have been filled. I can tell you that if you want to see more opportunities for kids (including your own) this is a great place to start.  Rick Skiba runs this and could provide more opportunities if he had more help. Locations, set up and mentors are  usually in short supply. I joined because they provided the opportunity to hunt at an exclusive duck club. I figured my $ and some time was the least I could do to give back since they provided my kid with an exceptional experience, and I wasnt even a member a the time. Im proud to be a member of the NW chapter and they have great leadership.

Yeah, Rick is a treasure for our youth.  I feel bad as I should have volunteered time and equipment, but I'll see if I can get in on the family hunt at the end of the year if they have that again.  The youth hunt can be a pretty incredible experience, one year we had a pit blind in a premium hunt club, well trained dog and dedicated caller for my son.  Can't beat that!

My son really liked going to the meetings and especially the banquet, looking forward to life returning to normal for that kind of stuff.

They are trying to close down Drayton Harbor to duck hunting via no shooting ordance DNR land is in the harbor.


Hello All!
We need your voice!  The non-shooting zone proposals appear to be a very close vote with the Whatcom County Council.  At the last meeting the issue was tabled in order to see if the Blaine City Council (who is the main force behind the proposals) would accept a 1000ft buffer and abandon the non-shooting zone proposals.
If Blaine refuses to accept this compromise, we need to show our opposition through written public comment and particularly through comments in the live meeting.
I strongly encourage all members to make their voices heard by sending your feedback to the Whatcom County Council at council@co.whatcom.wa.us and to attend the virtual council meeting on Tuesday June 1st at 6pm.  Zoom meeting information can be found here.
Make sure to include agenda item numbers AB2021-185 and AB2021-186 in your feedback.
This is extremely important to preserve public hunting opportunity and the unique experiences that Drayton Harbor has to offer.
Best Regards,
James Ono
WWA Vice-President

Thank you for the updates.  A loss of public hunting opportunity in any portion of the state effects us all.   Please continue to post on this.

The blinds will be semi-permanent, 4 x 8, constructed with T-poles and welded wire metal fencing. Camoed with natural materials.  Two of the blinds will have raised floors.  All materials are provided by the WDFW.

Tools needed:  Gloves, T-Post Driver (if you have one), side cutters (Dykes).

We will met at the Samish Unit Parking Lot (see below) at 9:00 am .  If you have Questions? just reply to this email or call at 425-299-6704.

 WWA is having a follow up work party to grass up the portable blinds and finish up the new ones built. AUG 7TH 9AM Bring gloves side cutters and gas powered hedge trimmers for cutting grass if you have one.

Help with the easy work and learn where the blinds are at.
