Advanced hunting seminars late 2019
It is hard to believe, only seven advanced hunting seminars are left for the rest of 2019.
All are full and no new registrations are possible. The only way to get to participate in one of them is by entering your name on the waiting list. If you are lucky, you will get the place of another hunter who had to cancel.
The list of advanced hunting clinics is disappointing to boar hunters because in keeping with the upcoming or ongoing seasons, there a no other wild pig hunting clinics in 2019.
As you can see from the following schedule of clinics, the classes now are dealing with upland game, waterfowl, and other mainly winged quarry:
|07/27/2019||Waterfowl Hunting Clinic||Sonoma County|
|08/10/2019||Upland Game Hunting Clinic||Los Angeles County|
|08/17/2019||Hunting with Air Guns||Los Angeles County|
|08/24/2019||Waterfowl Hunting Clinic||Solano County|
|09/21/2019||Waterfowl Hunting Clinic||Butte County|
|09/28/2019||Grasslands Waterfowl Hunting Clinic||Merced County|
|10/12/2019||Waterfowl Hunting Clinic||Riverside County|
Advanced hunting seminars concentrate on the how-to of hunting beyond the material covered in the basic hunter education courses required for licensing. The seminars deal with big game, turkey, upland game, and waterfowl. Besides anatomy, target areas, and where and when to shoot at the quarry, the clinics inform about hunting firearms, ammunition, gauging distance tracking, field dressing, and the importance of sighting in your firearm, to name a few topics.
These clinics also offer great opportunities to get to know other hunter and form networks of ethical, successful hunters in a social setting.
