(SALEM, Ore. ) - Are you new to hunting or out of practice?

Let the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife help show you how to enjoy this sport before fall hunting seasons kick off later this year. Register now for one of the upcoming August and September hunting workshops.

“Most people are taught to hunt by parents or other family members. But if you didn’t grow up in a hunting family, it can be hard to know how to get started,” said Mark Newell, ODFW outdoor skills coordinator. “ODFW’s workshops can fill the gap. We teach people of all ages how to hunt and fish.

We have found that some women prefer to learn among other women, some people want to bring their families and others just want to hunt with other adults,” continued Newell. “That’s why we have three different types of workshops – Family, Women’s or Adult.”

ODFW provides all the gear and equipment needed at these workshops including bows, arrows, firearms, shells, eye and ear protection, and hunter orange clothing. Safety is emphasized, and each class begins with a safety talk.

Pre-registration is required for all workshops. Visit ODFW’s license sales page to register.

For workshops that include an actual hunt, participants also need to purchase a hunting license, upland game bird validation and HIP validation before the class.

(Resident prices are $29.50 for an annual hunting license, $8.50 for an upland game bird validation and HIP is free.)

These items can be purchased online or at a license sales agent.

For more information contact Janice Copple at 503-947-6019 or Mark Newell at (503) 947-6018.
