 Saturday, Aug. 27—RANDOLPH—Interested in cooking up locally-sourced grouse, squirrel or rabbit in your kitchen this fall? Vermont Fish & Wildlife will be holding a “Small Game Hunting” seminar focusing on bird, rabbit and squirrel hunting.

The seminar will take place on Saturday, Aug. 27, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Randolph Fish & Game Club in Randolph. 

Tom Jones of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department will lead the seminar off with a workshop on hunting rabbits with beagles.

It’s sure to be a fun time for everyone involved.”

The seminar is free and includes lunch. Sign up by Wednesday, Aug. 24 at vtfishandwildlife.com. Space is limited to the first 30 signups and seminars fill up quickly.
