CWA to Host Duck Hunter's Forum  
      CWA is sponsoring a Duck Hunter's Forum to address the plight of the waterfowler in California. The waterfowling community is invited to this special, no cost event.

    The forum will be held Saturday, June 16th at the California State University Sacramento, Alumni Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

    The forum is an opportunity for waterfowlers to express their thoughts and perceptions about current waterfowl hunting issues. The last two waterfowl seasons have seen an apparent decline in the number of waterfowl taken, and the number of waterfowl seen in California during the duck season. In spite of predictions of record fall flights of waterfowl, liberal bags, and long seasons, we continue to see serious declines in California's huntable waterfowl.

Some of the foreseeable discussion topics include:

The weather during duck season
Winter-flooded rice stubble
Too much sanctuary
Moto/Robo ducks (effects, impact, and possible regulation)
Timing of season, season length, and the outlook for next season
Reduced hunting on Lower Klamath and Tule Lake NWRs

    Panel guests will include Dan Yparguirre, senior wildlife biologist with California Department of Fish and Game; Greg Mensik, wildlife biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; Tim Griffiths, CWA Biologist; Bill Gaines, Director of Government Affairs, CWA; Tim Johnson, executive director of the California Rice Commission; and others. Although the panel will make brief introductory remarks, the meeting will focus on listening to the opinions and observations of the waterfowl community.
