The Washington Outdoor Women are hosting an Introduction to Waterfowling one-day workshop on April 12, and will detail the history of waterfowling, its techniques, its ethics and conservation efforts.
WOW and French Creek instructors will help participants with shotgun patterning and shooting moving clays, setting decoys, calling, the use of blinds, and understanding (by seeing) why a retriever is such an important partner in this hunting experience.
This is a hands-on, active day, conducted in duck hunting terrain will require lots of walking and potentially challenging wading situations so knee high rubber boots, hip boots or chest waders are a must for the ponds and blinds.
Cost is $100. The fee includes all instruction, equipment, shotguns, ammunition, clays, a continental breakfast, a hearty lunch and a WOW shirt. The workshop takes place at a private Hunt Club in the Snohomish Valley, near Monroe. You must be 18 years old and older to participate.
