Got some pics to share from the Cibola NWR Youth Waterfowl Hunt that was held December 12-14 2009 at Cibola NWR along the Colorado River. Thanks to all that helped put this great hunt together. AZ Fish and Game, Cibola NWR, Yuma Valley Rod & Gun Club who served up the hot chow, Sprague's Sporting Goods for the 20 ga. shotgun in the raffle. Cibola Sportsman's Club for letting the kids shoot their two ranches and use the club for staging. DU (Ducks Unlimited) for the mentors and help.
The kids knocked down 18 honkers and 1 snow and busted over 50 ducks. The Cibola NWR let the kids shoot in the afternoon this year and they had a ball getting most of their ducks then.
First geese ever for these two young ladies who were shooting on the farm unit of the Cibola NWR. And a band on one to boot.
First geese ever for these 2 guys who were shooting on the farm unit of the Cibola NWR.
This lil guy could hardly see over the pit blind but he smoked 2 geese Saturday.
Kids plucking their first goose.
Tim Corbett from Cibola Sportsman's Club setting dekes for the Sunday morning hunt. The rye grass was up but you can hardly see it in this pic. This is the pit blind where the two kids shot geese Sunday morning that I missed with the video camera. My deer blind could only see 1 field, the one south of this field.
Always great sunsets at Cibola. Looking out over the flooded milo marsh at Cibola Sportsman's Club.
I've got some video I'm putting together from the hunt, if you were there and want to share some pics to be included in the video please email me. Thanks.
