MICHIGAN – The annual tradition of white-tailed deer hunting will quickly be upon us!
Hunters are critical to conservation and deer management and every year more people are learning hunting skills to provide a good, sustainable protein source for their families. Hunters come from all backgrounds and levels of knowledge. Some people come from strong hunting families, while others are relatively new.
If you are new to hunting, you may find that resources geared for the beginner hunter are few; because of that Michigan State University Extension and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources are offering a “Hunting Basics” webinar series specifically designed for new, beginner or novice hunters to learn new skills and build their confidence before they head to the woods this fall.
The Hunting Basics webinar series will be held every Tuesday at noon in September and will include the following topics:
- Sept. 7: Selecting the right gear for your hunt lead by Alyssa Tarnowski, MDNR
- Sept. 14: Field dressing & home processing lead by Dr. Jeannine Schweihofer and Tina Conklin, MSU Extension
- Sept. 21: The ins and outs of land access lead by Mike Harper, MDNR
- Sept. 28: Breaking down deer hunting regulations lead by Holly Vaughn, MDNR
Registration for the webinar series is free. All sessions will be recorded and made available to registrants to view at their convenience if they are not able to attend at noon. For more information, please contact Katie Ockert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
