Anyone who wants to learn the basics of upland bird hunting is invited to attend Upland Bird Day from 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Dakota County Gun Club in Rosemount, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said.
“The day is tailored to those who have not yet hunted upland birds or have limited experience,”
said Linda Bylander, DNR outreach program coordinator.
Participants will learn about pheasant and grouse, their habitats and habits. A series of hands-on learning stations follow the group presentation. Stations include how to hunt a field, shotgun patterning, shotgun shooting technique, hunting with a dog, game cleaning and care and how to locate public hunting lands.
The DNR, Dakota County Gun Club and Pheasants Forever are jointly hosting the program.
Register for this free program by contacting Bylander at 218-833-8628 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is limited.
