Frog gigging, or frogging, is a great way to enjoy Missouri’s fish, forest and wildlife resources while also putting food on the table the whole family can enjoy. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites families to discover nature at a frog gigging clinic 8 p.m. – after dark on Friday, July 26, at Blind Pony Fish Hatchery. The clinic is free and open to youth ages 5-15 and their parent or adult mentors, but preregistration is required by July 23.
Participants will have a classroom session to learn the basics of frog gigging safety, equipment, identification, and regulations. Before the sun goes down, staff will cook some frog legs for participants to taste. Then, the lucky frog giggers will have the opportunity to put their knowledge to the test and go frogging with the help of MDC staff. Participants will also learn how to clean their catch to take home and cook.
To register for this free clinic, or for more information, contact Agent Chase Wright at 660-641-3345 or by email at [email protected].
