Hamden Slough Youth Hunt

September 18, 2010

Young hunters, mentors and parents came out for a morning of duck hunting at Hamden Slough National Wildlife Refuge.

Staff and Friends of Detroit Lakes Wetland Management District, along with volunteers from Ducks Unlimited, hosted the youth and their families for a morning of hands-on waterfowling. Midwest Regional Director, Tom Melius, was among the dedicated mentors who shared their passion for waterfowling and conservation. This is the second annual youth hunt that Hamden Slough NWR has hosted and is a unique and very special day for mentors and hunters alike.
