Seminars on waterfowl hunting to be offered at West Virginia’s Celebration of National Hunting & Fishing Days September 22 and 23 at Stonewall Resort State Park

Free seminars on waterfowl hunting will be offered at National Hunting and Fishing Days, September 22 and 23 at Stonewall Resort State Park, according to Frank Jezioro, Director of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.

“There are a lot of hunting opportunities in West Virginia for waterfowl, especially when it comes to goose hunting,” Jezioro said. “However, the majority of our hunters are unfamiliar with the techniques and regulations that are involved. Because of this lack of knowledge, we’ve invited Joe Austin, President of DOA Outfitters, to offer his expertise on waterfowl hunting at this year’s event. Even if you’re already an avid waterfowl hunter you still don’t want to miss his seminar. In fact, everyone attending National Hunting and Fishing Days will have a chance to win a FREE Snow Goose Hunt, donated by DOA Outfitters, which includes food and lodging.”

Nearly 20,000 wildlife enthusiasts will be in attendance at this year’s event to try their hand at everything from archery, shooting, fly-fishing, and kids fishing derby, to list only a few; making it the state’s largest outdoor hunting and fishing event. Attendees will also have the opportunity to sit in on several wildlife demonstrations or visit one of the hundred-plus vendors on hand. In addition to DOA Outfitters conducting seminars on waterfowl hunting, other seminars will be conducted on training bird dogs, coyote calling, turkey and deer calling, and fishing tips/techniques to list only a few.
