Youth Waterfowl Weekend

Youth Waterfowl Weekend

Hunting will be available for youth hunters age 15 and younger on Saturday, Oct. 22 and Sunday, Oct. 23. We will open the south portion of Pool 1 to unlimited parties, similar to the north end for teal and early goose season. It will be self-check at the headquarters for both mornings, and there will be no draw. The refuge line is well marked with white signs on posts, and hunting is allowed on any portion of Pool 1 south of this line. No one is allowed north of the refuge line for any reason. All hunting must be from a boat. Hunting from the bank or the boat docks is not allowed.

There will also be some opportunity to hunt the two properties recently donated to Duck Creek by Ducks Unlimited. There will be a map at the headquarters with directions to the fishponds field and the rice field at Kinder. Both fields have some shallow flooded water in them. We are not going to limit a number of hunters in either field; however, opportunity in these fields will be limited to just a few parties due to their small size.

Dark Cypress Swamp has a little water in the low areas and can provide some hunting opportunity as a walk-in area. There is a self-check box at the first parking area as you enter the area.

Self-check-in opens at 4 a.m. Shooting hours begin at 6:44 a.m. on Saturday and 6:45 a.m. on Sunday. All hunting ceases at 1 p.m.


Darin-The last official count was 325 on Duck Creek and 4,000 on Mingo.  We are conducting another survey on October 24.  I will post a hunting update with new numbers within the next day or two.Anonymous- I am not sure what you are asking.  Hunting was never illegal.

Is hunting legalized now ???????

What are the bird numbers at Duck Creek and Mingo? Thanks!!
