This “A to Z” class on how to hunt waterfowl will cover everything you need to know to get started, including how to find a location, scouting, calling and gear. The class is sponsored by Conquest Scents.

We will start the day in the classroom and then move to the hiking trails around the Carl T. Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center. The trails are ADA-accessible and easy to walk. Once outside, we will demonstrate how to set up your hunting site, setting up decoys, calling and more. All students will leave with the firsthand experience that will increase their chances for success this upcoming waterfowl season.

Cost is $30, which includes lunch.
