Youth Waterfowl

First Goose

The third weekend of September is always a fun one as in Washington State the game department allows youth hunters ( under 16 ) to get the first shot at gamebirds and waterfowl before the general openers in October. Luck would have it that my two boys were invited to a hosted youth hunt that Saturday with a couple other eager young hunters on a private grain field in the Sequim Valley. A foggy September dawn broke early as we hunkered in the well camo’d layout blinds waiting on early migrating mallards and geese. With guns a blazing these youths knocked down a few good birds and before the dust settled with temps warmed into the mid-70’s Elliott had his first Canada goose and the makings of a great stir fry dinner that night !
