Hunting Without Harvest - September 17 - 18, 2016

 
The word “hunting” in its simplest terms means to search for, to seek, to pursue. It has become so entwined with weapons and harvest as to shut the door for many from participating in the great sport of hunting. Hunting can be done with the only harvest being by camera, pen and notebook, or simply one’s memory. This workshop, hosted by Ron Weber, will give non-hunters the confidence to take part in the great sport of hunting in a non-consumptive way. Visit http://dnr.wi.gov/wnrmag/2016/08/Hunting.PDF for an indepth look at this approach.

Topics to be covered include:
  •     Skills and equipment specific to hunting deer, turkey and predators such as coyote and fox.
  •     Animal habits and signs.
  •     Basic orienteering.
  •     Safety concerns and ethical practices will be stressed throughout the course.

    Much of this class will be held outdoors,so boots and outdoor clothing are required. Camouflage clothing would be helpful but not mandatory. A camera or notebook and pen may come in handy to capture any interesting moments from the hunt. Class size is limited to 20
