Annual mentored waterfowl hunt: Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area

An annual mentored hunt held at Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area (NWA).


The Annual Mentored Waterfowl Hunt is designed for adults who are interested in learning to hunt for the connection to nature and the food that hunting provides. Most are beginners who have no hunters in their circle of family and friends who could otherwise get them started.

The mentored hunt is a two-day experience. The focus is on ethical, on-foot, up-close-to-nature experiences, and enjoying locally-sourced food.

Mentored hunt 2018

The Second Annual Mentored Hunt on September 15-16, 2018 was a great success. Despite rain and a very early morning, mentors had an excellent experience with their new-to-hunting participants. A smaller group allowed for more one-on-one mentorship, and extra time for each activity. As is the nature of hunting, they did not get as many waterfowl as the previous year. However, the experience of observing wildlife in its purest form paired with the amazing attitudes of the participants made it worth it. Another triumphant hunt with some happy hunters.

Mentored hunt 2017

The First Annual Mentored Hunt on September 16-17, 2017 was a roaring success. There was amazing weather, they got a good number of waterfowl, and learned so much. The participants filled out some feedback, and the only “negative” comment was that they wished the event were longer. The intended message and attitude came across strongly, and the new waterfowl hunters walked away with confidence. This was great experience, and the mentors could not stop grinning about how well this went.
