This program requires students to have completed MN DNR gun safety. The goal of Learn to Hunt is to develop all the skills necessary to hunt safely on your own. Students will be expected to watch online videos at home (homework!) in order to maximize class time shooting and being afield. This program is divided into 3 one week segments. In order to complete the program, students must sign up for all three segments.

Shawn Garlinghouse Legacy Schoot
In its five years, this fundraiser has raised thousands of dollars annually to support our youth programs. It completely underwrites the cost of the Garlinghouse Legacy Shoot (kids getting a chance to shoot pheasants in the field) and contributes additional funds to support all our other programs for kids. Come as a single or bring a team and join us for a day of sporting clays and lunch to support public land!
