MADISION — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will host the second of several educational hunting webinars Wednesday, Aug. 31, for members of the public that are new to hunting or curious about hunting.

The webinar series is in partnership with the National Wild Turkey Federation, Pheasants Forever and Becoming an Outdoorswoman. The series is designed for those interested in learning about hunting, fishing and trapping.

Each episode will feature guest speakers sharing their experiences getting started with hunting and include discussions addressing common challenges faced by those new to hunting, fishing or trapping.

This month’s webinar, "Wanna Go Hunting: What Can We Hunt?" covers the wide variety of hunting opportunities available in Wisconsin and basic equipment needs to get started.

Following a brief presentation and panel discussion, the audience will have opportunities to ask questions that panelists will answer at the end of the program.


The webinar is set for 7 p.m. and is viewable at youtube.com/watch?v=WdejnOkO9ec .
