Event Description:

NOTE: Event in Central Time.

Learn to Hunt workshops are species-specific multi-day workshop series tailored to new hunters or those interested in learning about hunting.

The Learn to Hunt: Squirrel workshop series consists of two sessions: combined classroom and shooting range practice and a separate mentored hunt. Participants must attend the combined classroom and range session in order to be eligible for the mentored squirrel hunt session. The hunt session will take place during the squirrel hunting season. Hunt session availability is dependent on mentor availability. Participants must acquire a valid Indiana hunting license before attending the hunt session.

During this classroom session, participants will become familiar with:

  • Indiana squirrel hunting laws
  • Basic squirrel biology
  • Methods and strategies for hunting squirrel
  • Recommend equipment for squirrel hunting
  • Where to hunt squirrel
  • Recipes for cooking squirrel

During the range session, participants will become familiar with:

  • Basic firearms safety (both at the range and in the field)
  • Shooting techniques (stance and form)
  • Shot placement (sighting or patterning to know where to aim)
  • Basic firearm maintenance (cleaning and care at the range and in the field)

All firearms and ammunition is provided for the range session.

A portion of this workshop will be outside in grassy areas. Please dress accordingly; long pants and close-toed footwear are recommended.

There is no cost associated in attending this combined classroom and range session of the Learn to Hunt: Squirrel workshop. You are not required to have a hunting license for this session. Participants must be at least 18 years old or accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend.

Pre-registration is required to participate in this workshop due to limited space. Register by clicking the red Register icon at the top right.
