Youth Hunting & Conservation Course a Great Success!

Long Point Media News

Long Point Waterfowl recently held its 5th annual Youth Hunting & Conservation Course (YHCC).  The YHCC was held from July 20th to the 25th at our Research & Education Centre. Thirty youth (ages 12 – 16) from across Ontario attended the 6 days of classroom certification, hands-on activities, hunting demonstrations and FUN!!

Reporter Jeff Tribe, of the Tillsonburg News, wrote a very informative article about this year’s YHCC. The link to that article, with many of Jeff’s great photos from the event is:

Scott’s Adventures in the High Arctic

Scott Petrie (LPW Executive Director) was lucky to be invited to participate in a spring Snow Goose hunt with Canada in the Rough (Beasley Brothers) in June.

The hunt took place on Southampton Island, just below the Arctic Circle. The TV program will air in early 2014. Scott indicated that it was the trip of a lifetime!
