Deer in Spring Landscape

Hunting & Shooting Sports Outreach Program

Woman at shooting range

The primary goal of this program is to provide the ‘next step’ for novice hunters and shooters such that they will feel comfortable moving forward in the shooting and hunting sports as a result of their experience in the workshop. The program will be a series of ‘mini-workshops’ in partnership with public shooting ranges and other appropriate venues. These mini-workshops are designed to be as hands-on as possible, giving participants enough knowledge to further pursue their interests once the workshop is concluded. Hunter safety is NOT required before taking these workshops.
