KINGMAN, Ariz. — Young hunters who want to learn all about waterfowl hunting are invited to attend the annual Pintail Slough Junior Waterfowl Camp, sponsored by the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) and Havasu National Wildlife Refuge. 

The camp will take place Jan. 6-8 (hunters check in Jan. 6) at Havasu National Wildlife Refuge. The deadline to register is Nov. 4. The event is limited to 18 hunters between ages 12 and 17 (each must be accompanied by an adult). No prior experience is necessary. 

All young hunters will learn how to identify, hunt and field-dress waterfowl before putting those skills to use in the Pintail Slough duck blinds.

“If you aren’t getting out, you’re missing out,” said Cody Johnston, wildlife manager supervisor. “This is a great opportunity for parents to get outside with their kids and enjoy the outdoors.”

To request an application, contact Jessica Stephens at, or call AZGFD’s regional office in Kingman at 928-692-7700. A refundable $40 registration fee is required. Participants will be chosen through a random draw and notified by email or telephone.
