2019 Natural Resources Weekend

2018 & 2019

Virginia Outdoor Sportsman Shows

The partnership event provided courses for beginning and experienced waterfowlers.

The Wing Shooting Skills class was a live fire course.  Most participants used their own shotguns. However  firearms were available and ammo provided.

 The Decoy Placement class provided both duck and goose spreads for different conditions.  This hands on course offered a variety of spreads on land and water.

The Waterfowl Regulations and Identification class was taught by a DGIF Conservation Police Officer. The course  covered waterfowl id on the wing, laws/regulations, safety and ethics specific to waterfowl hunting.

Special Thanks to the  VAWFA Members whom volunteered at the fishing event
