Let's hope the junior hunters can take advantage of high winds if they continue through the weekend, as the annual two-day special junior waterfowl hunt is slated for this weekend.
That's how it always happens. As soon as waterfowl season is over the wind starts blowing, driving ducks off the Salton Sea and into the protected ponds of different refuges' private clubs.
The special hunt is open to all hunters who hold a junior hunting license. The same rules and regulations that applied to the regular season apply to the junior waterfowl hunt. An adult must accompany junior hunters. Adults are not allowed to hunt nor is a hunting license necessary for the adult to accompany the young hunter.
