Department of Fish and Game’s Advanced Hunting Clinics Focus on the "How-Tos" of Hunting

The Department of Fish and Game is offering a series of advanced hunting clinics that focus on the basics of hunting. The series includes sessions on how to hunt turkey, upland game, waterfowl, and big game. Topics covered in each clinic include type of firearm, ammunition, importance of sighting in the firearm, gauging distance, scouting, tracking, field dressing, shoot-don't shoot scenarios, hunter ethics, landowner-hunter relationships, conservation, and safety. The goal of this series of hunting clinics is to develop ethical, conservation-minded, successful hunters through education...taking the hunter a step beyond the basic Hunter Education course. A list of the clinics offered between now and September 29 follows; for a description of all of the clinics offered click here (http://www.dfg.ca.gov/huntered/advanced/).

Contact Lieutenant Dan Lehman, at 916-358-4356, for more information or visit the DFG website here (http://www.dfg.ca.gov/huntered/advanced/).
