Conferees interested in waterfowl hunting before the symposium are encouraged to contact the following outfitters and make personal arrangements. Additional outfitters will be listed as their availability to guide conferees to hunt in the famed Mississippi Alluvial Valley is verified. Dates for the 2012-2013 waterfowl hunting season will be set soon. However, a likely ending date for the 2012-2013 waterfowl season will be Sunday, 27 January 2013, which is the first day of the symposium. Thus, we encourage conferees interested in waterfowl hunting to contact outfitter services and reserve hunting date(s) during the week of 21 January 2013.
