Jamestown Wildlife Area to host tours of the area, provide waterfowl hunting info
JAMESTOWN — On Sept. 8, Jamestown Wildlife Area managers will hold the traditional Jamestown Waterfowl Information night with a change of venue. Instead of meeting in a classroom with presentations, pictures, graphs, and tables, interested hunters and outdoor lovers are invited to Jamestown Wildlife Area to see the conditions on site. A driving tour will begin at 6 p.m. from the area headquarters and return at 7:30 p.m. for a short presentation and question and answer session. Tom Bidrowski, migratory game bird specialist for the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) will be the featured speaker.

Attendees will see the challenges of management in 2011, how water is moved and held in various pools, and habitat conditions expected for this upcoming season. This is an excellent opportunity for the public to get a sneak peak before the early teal season opens on the area Sept. 10. Attendees will also learn about expected waterfowl numbers for the upcoming fall, waterfowl season dates, bag limits, and habitat conditions throughout the central flyway.

For more information, phone the area office at 785-439-6243. Jamestown Wildlife Area is located near Concordia, approximately 4 miles north and 2 miles west of Jamestown.
