Outdoor Skills Academy Waterfowl Hunting Clinic
Saturday, Sept. 24 at 10 a.m.
Carl T. Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center
Mitchell State Park, Cadillac
Joe Duncan of Daggs Custom Calls, state champion caller and part of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Outdoor Skills Academy pro-staff, will lead this “A to Z” class on how to hunt waterfowl. It will cover everything you need to know to get started, including how to find a location, scouting, calling and gear.
The class will run four to five hours. We will start the day in the classroom and then move to the hiking trails around the Carl T. Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center. The trails meet Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility guidelines and are easy to walk. Once outside, we will demonstrate setting up your hunting site and decoys, calling and more. All students will leave with firsthand experience that will increase their chances for success this upcoming waterfowl season.
Cost is $30, which includes lunch. Participation is limited to 30.
