[DNR] Beginner Waterfowl hunting workshop, Sugar Ridge Fish & Wildlife Area
Start Date: 10/5/2013Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 10/5/2013End Time: 1:00 PM
Event Description:

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources will offer a free waterfowl hunting workshop at Sugar Ridge Fish and Wildlife Area. This workshop will focus on Canada goose hunting.

The workshop is intended for novice waterfowl hunters and those who want to try waterfowl hunting for the first time. All ages are welcome.

Parents who already hunt waterfowl are welcome to bring children, but the material is tailored for beginners; experienced waterfowl hunters are unlikely to learn much from the workshops. Organizers hope to build on the successes of workshops held in recent years.

Partly because of feedback from past participants, this year workshop will include some information on duck hunting, but will focus on goose hunting.

Presentation topics will include waterfowl hunting regulations; goose and duck identification; and equipment and techniques, including a show-and-tell segment. Waterfowl hunting equipment, including blinds, waders, clothing, decoys and gadgets will be displayed and discussed at length.

DNR Law Enforcement and Fish & Wildlife personnel will be available to answer questions. Lunch will be provided.

The workshop will occur partially outdoors, rain or shine. Participants should consider bringing a lawn chair and weather-appropriate clothing (a jacket or raincoat).

The workshop is free, but registration is required.
