The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is offering a program to teach skills needed to hunt upland birds to anyone who has little to no upland bird hunting experience. 

The December 17th and 18th workshop will feature a two hour knowledge and skills building sessions with instructors that will teach the basics of upland hunting and wingshooting.

Participants will learn basic strategies for hunting upland birds such as proper equipment, where to hunt, and safe shooting practices.

The course runs from 5PM to 6:30PM and is designed for participants 18 years of age and older.  The course is $35 and will be held at T-Bocks Bar and Grill in Decorah, IA.  The event features a mentored hunt on Saturday December 18th.  Space is limited so be sure to register right away.  Participants will receive a hat and lunch on Saturday provided by Winneshiek Pheasants Forever.
