Hey all, we are hosting the 4th annual wood duck dinner. This dinner is to raise money to support student generated research. A strong component of the project is getting as many people to come out and help and put birds in peoples hands. We have had >1000 people come out over the years with over 370 in 2012 alone! Undergrads come out to learn wildlife techniques, high school kids use the data for science projects, and younger kids come out to touch their first living wild animal. Currently, this project, in cooperation with local hunters, is allowing for different harvest levels across years. We are also expanding the project since this project has an extremely high proportion of the population marked.
We are looking for donations, please PM if interested. These forums have been the conduit from many GREAT donors in the past, and its been greatly appreciated!
This year, for the 4th time, Jeff Wasley from Four Flyway Outfitters has donated a hunt. The donation for this year is for 6 days at Cold Bay, Alaska. The hunt includes food, lodging, and guiding with all of the new toys Jeff is getting out there. This is for a five day hunt with discounts for additional hunters. Jeff has open dates in October 2013 or you can work with Jeff for dates in 2014. Thanks a ton Jeff! Contact me if you'd like to bid on this remotely, over the phone.
