COOKS LAKE YOUTH DUCK HUNT


The Friends of the Refuge helped wrap up duck season by partnering with the Dale Bumpers/White River Refuge, Arkansas Game & Fish Commission, Arkansas Game & Fish Foundation, and the Arkansas Baptist Boys Ranch for a weekend youth duck. Held at Cooks Lakes, the activities included gun safety, waterfowl identification field trips along with morning and afternoon duck hunts. In addition the kids were treated to some top notch calling lessons from World Champion duck caller Jim Rondquest

Jay Hitchcock, refuge waterfowl biologist and one of the hunt coordinators said: “A lot of ammunition was shot, memories made and hopefully a foundation was laid for future conservationists. We wish to thank our hunt sponsors Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation, Friends of White River NWR and White River Guide Service for their generous support and to the Arkansas Baptist Boys Ranch for being a part of this hunt. And a big thanks to Jim Ronquest for taking time out of his busy schedule to spend an hour with these kids to teach them how to blow a duck call.”
