  • Oregon's youngest guns will get the state's first shots at waterfowl beginning Saturday, Sept. 22, as part of the statewide youth waterfowl hunt.
    Kids 15 and younger can take part in the two-day hunt as long as they hold the necessary permits, have a Hunter Education Certificate and are accompanied by a nonhunting adult age 21 or older.
    Places such as the state-owned Denman Wildlife Area are open, as well as most area public lands, but hunters are urged to check with the land-managing agency to make sure they are open.
    All ducks and geese bag limits apply locally. However, hunters in the Northwest Zone will see goose hunting closed in most areas.
    Hunters in Lake County also will see a bag limit of no more than one white-fronted goose each day of the hunt.
    Youth-only hunts such as this one do not qualify under the Mentored Youth Hunter Program.
