Special Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days to be Held February 12-13
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources' (ADCNR) Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF) has designated February 12-13, 2011, as Special Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days. On those two days, youth age 15 years and younger may hunt when accompanied by a licensed adult hunter age 25 years and older, or the parent of the youth. Regular waterfowl season shooting hours, bag limits, legal arms and ammunitions apply to the special days.
To participate in the hunt, youth must be accompanied by an adult supervisor. The adult supervisor, who may not hunt, must remain within arm's length of the youth at all times. The adult supervisor may accompany up to two youth participants during the hunt, and must have a state hunting license, state and federal waterfowl stamp, and a free harvest information program stamp.
Only one firearm will be allowed per youth, and only the youth hunters will be permitted to utilize the firearm for hunting. The adult is expected to review the rules of firearm safety and hunter ethics with each youth and ensure they are followed. The firearm safety rules can be found in the hunter education section of www.outdooralabama.com.

 The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama's natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.

Registration for Late-Season Youth Dove Hunt Now Open
Registration is currently underway for a late-season Youth Dove Hunt in Baldwin County on March 8, 2011. The hunt will take place at a sunflower and corn field near Summerdale, Ala. To register for this event call the Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF) district five office at 251-626-5474. Pre-registration is necessary for all youth dove hunts. Hunt schedules and registration information is available in the hunting section of www.outdooralabama.com.
To participate in the hunts, youth hunters must be age 15 or younger and accompanied by an adult at least 25 years old (or a parent) who holds a valid state hunting license and a Harvest Information Program (HIP) stamp. Before each hunt, a short welcome session with reminders on hunting safety will be conducted. All hunters are encouraged to wear eye protection and earplugs.

 This year a small number of youth dove hunt participants will be surveyed by phone, both before and after the hunts, to help the WFF gather information to help ensure the future of our hunting heritage. Hunter cooperation in the survey will be greatly appreciated and helps to improve the event.
