The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has released its schedule of Advanced Hunter Education classes for 2016.
Several new offerings have been added, including Hunter Marksmanship, Hunt Planning and Basic Game Processing.
Other popular clinics are still on the roster, including Wilderness First Aid, Wild Pig Hunting, Deer Hunting, Turkey Hunting, Land Navigation, Waterfowl Hunting, Upland Game Hunting and Game Cooking.
“If you are new to hunting or just want to explore a skill you haven’t tried before, these clinics may be for you,” said Lt. Alan Gregory of the CDFW Advanced Hunter Education program. “Even though they’re sponsored by the Advanced Hunter Education program, these clinics offer something for students of all ages and skill levels, from beginner to experienced.”
The clinics are held at various locations throughout the state. Preregistration is necessary and enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. Students under 18 are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.
