Youth waterfowl weekend is Sept. 23-24

MONTPELIER — A youngster’s first hunt can mark the beginning of a lifelong passion for the outdoors and a commitment to wildlife conservation. There is no finer time to begin this journey than during Vermont’s upcoming youth waterfowl hunting weekend on Sept. 23 and 24.
“Vermont’s youth waterfowl hunting weekend helps ensure that young hunters get the quality training and experiences they need for lifelong participation,” said Fish & Wildlife Commissioner Louis Porter. “By design, the youth weekend hunt reinforces the route of initiation that is critical in recruitment — learning from an experienced adult role model.”
On Sept. 23 and 24, hunters 17 years of age or younger may hunt ducks and geese in the Lake Champlain and Interior Vermont waterfowl hunting zones, and youths 15 and under can hunt in the Connecticut River zone, according to the following conditions. The youth hunter must have a Vermont hunting license and must be accompanied by an unarmed adult, 18 years of age or older, who also has a Vermont hunting license. Youths 16 and 17 must have state and federal duck stamps. The adult may not hunt waterfowl or carry a firearm while accompanying the youth when the youth is hunting waterfowl.
Ducks and geese may be taken by youth hunters on Sept. 23 and 24 according to the bag limits set in the 2017-2018 Syllabus of State and Federal Hunting Regulations for Migratory Birds in Vermont, available from Vermont post offices, Fish & Wildlife offices and as a downloadable file from vtfishandwildlife.com.
