Learn to Hunt: Pheasant (Classroom and Range Sessions)

Saturday, August 10, 2019
8 a.m. – noon ET

Learn to Hunt workshops are species specific multi-day workshop series tailored to new hunters or those interested in learning about hunting. Participants must be at least 18 years old or accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend.

Learn to Hunt Pheasant workshop series consist of three sessions: (1) classroom, (2) shooting range, and (3) mentored hunt. This workshop will cover both the classroom and shooting range sessions.

Participants must attend the classroom and shooting range sessions in order to be eligible for the mentored pheasant hunt session. The hunt session will take place during the pheasant hunting season November 1 to December 15. Hunt session availability will depend on mentor availability. Participants must acquire a valid Indiana hunting license before attending the hunt session.

  • 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 will be provided for the shooting range session.
