The Youth Day Mentored Waterfowl Hunt is intended to give youth hunters an opportunity to hunt waterfowl under the guidance of experienced mentors. For this event, only hunters ages 11-16 years old will be eligible. Space is limited, and participants will be selected via lottery. You will be notified via phone and email if you have been selected for the hunt by January 20, 2023. (Please note: only those selected will be notified)
This event is brought to you by a partnership with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Maryland Sportsmen’s Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, and Delta Waterfowl.
No experience is necessary to participate in this event, including Hunter Education or a current hunting license. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources offers an Apprentice Hunting License, which can be obtained and used for one hunting season.
