Learn to Hunt weekend workshop for deer

Sept. 17-18 — WOODBURY —New hunters looking for mentorship and a community to learn with are invited to the department’s third annual Learn to Hunt series. Vermont Fish & Wildlife scheduled two free weekend workshops this fall, one on deer hunting, and one on waterfowl and upland game.

“We’ve found that new hunters, especially people who are taking up hunting as adults, learn best when they have both experienced mentors and supportive peers,” said Hunter Education Training Coordinator Nathan Lafont.  “Our free Learn to Hunt weekends build that community for new hunters getting ready for the fall season.”

Grouse hunting can be a great way to enjoy the fall.

Learn to Hunt: White-tailed Deer will be held at Buck Lake Conservation Camp in Woodbury from 8 a.m. on Saturday, Sept 17 /5:00 p.m. on Sunday, Sept 18.  This intensive overnight workshop gives new hunters an introduction to scouting, picking a hunting spot, what to do before, during, and after the shot, and more.  During the weekend, new hunters will be paired with an experienced hunting mentor to guide them through the fall novice deer weekend.

For more information about the seminars, contact the hunter education Program at 802-828-1193.  Registration for all upcoming Hunter Education seminars and classes is available on Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s website at this link: register-ed.com/programs/vermont.
