Advanced Hunting Clinics

CDFW's Advanced Hunting Clinics focus on the "how-tos" 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.

For more information, email Lt. Alan Gregory, Alan.Gregory@wildlife.ca.gov.
