The Friends of Poynette Game Farm has scheduled several Learn-to-Hunt pheasant programs starting in September. These programs are open to any novice hunter. Participants will be provided with firearm safety training, shotgun shooting, hunting dog demonstrations and a mentored pheasant hunt. Pheasant biology and management, hunting regulations and field dressing of pheasants will also be covered.

A Wisconsin hunter safety certification is not required. All equipment, ammunition, firearms and food will be provided. Participants may not have participated in a previous Learn to Hunt pheasant program and have no previous pheasant hunting experience.

All classes are held from 1-5 p.m. Saturday and from 8 a.m. to noon Sunday. Register by one week prior to event dates; the fee is $10.
