MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will host the second of several hunting education webinars on Wednesday, August 31 for members of the public new to hunting or curious about hunting.
The webinar series is in partnership with the National Wild Turkey Federation, Pheasants Forever and Becoming an Outdoorswoman. The series is designed for those who want to learn more about hunting, fishing and trapping.
Each episode will feature guest speakers sharing their experiences starting out in hunting and will include discussions of common challenges faced by newcomers to hunting, fishing or trapping.
This month’s webinar – You want to go hunting: what can we hunt? – covers the wide variety of hunting opportunities available in Wisconsin and the basic gear you need to start.
“Wisconsin is fortunate to be home to many wildlife species that provide a sustainable source of food and fur. Regulated management of these species ensures that their populations will continue to thrive in the future,” said Bob Nack, MNR Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation Team Supervisor. “Attendees will learn about Wisconsin’s huntable species, where to find them, and the basic equipment needed to get started.”
After a brief presentation and panel discussion, the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions, which the panelists will answer at the end of the program. Each webinar will be recorded and available online.
From small game to big game, Wisconsin has something for everyone to get out there and chase this fall. Time spent with family and friends in our woods, prairies and wetlands will create memories for years to come.
Learn about different hunting season dates, rules and regulations, harvest quotas and more on the MNR website.
