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.
