Event Description:

The Learn to Hunt series consists of species-specific multi-day workshops tailored to new hunters or those interested in learning about hunting. The Learn to Hunt: Waterfowl series consists of two sessions: a combination classroom/shooting range session and a mentored hunt.  This workshop is the combination classroom/shooting range session.

Participants must attend the combination classroom/shooting range session in order to be eligible for the mentored waterfowl hunt session. The hunt session will take place during waterfowl hunting season and will depend on mentor availability.

During the classroom portion of this workshop, participants will become familiar with:

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

During the shooting range portion of this workshop, 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)

Participants must be at least 18 years old or accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend. All firearms, ammunition, and safety equipment is provided for the shooting range portion. Portions of this workshop will be outside, please dress accordingly.

There is no cost associated with attending this workshop. You are not required to have a hunting license for this session of the Learn to Hunt: Waterfowl series. Participants will need to acquire a valid Indiana hunting license, Indiana waterfowl stamp, and federal duck stamp before attending the mentored hunt session.
