RALEIGH, N.C. (Sept. 11) – Looking for a good opportunity to introduce a youth to waterfowl hunting? If so, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission may have just what you need.

The Commission is accepting applications for its first youth-only swan hunt that will take place Jan. 19 on private land in Tyrrell County. Just 10 slots are available for youth hunters, ages 15 and under, to participate.

“Partnering with several private individuals and organizations, the Commission is offering a truly unique opportunity for youth interested in waterfowl hunting,” said David Cobb, director of the Division of Wildlife Management. “This event provides not only the chance to pursue the largest - and perhaps most unique - waterfowl species that winters in our state, but also to spend time meeting and interacting with other hunters while learning about the biology of, and hunting techniques for, tundra swans.”

The event, which will also include free activities such as skeet shooting, is made possible by private partners. Participants will be provided lodging for the evening of Friday, Jan. 18, along with a hunt orientation and complimentary meals. Licensed adults may attend and join their youth in the field, but are not allowed to shoot.

The deadline for permit applications is Oct. 1, and requires a $10 processing fee. Apply at any wildlife service agent, by telephone at 1-888-248-6834, or at the Commission’s headquarters from Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at 1751 Varsity Drive in Raleigh.
