Did you know hunting can be done with the only harvest being by camera, pen and notebook, or simply one’s memory? One can hunt without a weapon and without taking an animal’s life. This workshop is designed to teach specific hunting skills that will give non-hunters the confidence to take part in and enjoy the great sport of hunting in a non-consumptive way.

Topics to be covered include:
–  Skills and equipment specific to hunting deer, turkey, coyote and fox
–  Animal habits and signs
–  Basic orienteering (compass, map, GPS use)
–  Safety concerns and ethical practices will be stressed throughout course

Much of this class will be outdoors. Boots and outdoor clothing are required, and camouflage is recommended but not mandatory. A camera or notebook and pen may come in handy to capture any interesting moments from the hunt. You may also email the instructor, Ron, for more info or read this article about his experiences that inform this workshop.

Ron Weber is a former high school science teacher turned forester who is grateful to have been influenced by the conservation and hunting ethics espoused by Aldo Leopold, Gordon MacQuarrie, and other conservation giants. Through them, he has learned that it is the journey, not the end that makes hunting a worthy pursuit and pastime.
