Snowshoe Hare Hunting Workshop Offered
HOLDERNESS, N.H. -- If you're a hunter in the grip of cabin fever, why not come to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness, N.H., and learn about the exciting sport of snowshoe hare hunting. The free workshop will take place from 9:00 a.m. until noon, on Saturday, March 3, 2007. Space is limited to 30 participants and pre-registration is required. To reserve a place in the session, call the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center at (603) 536-1290.
Fish and Game Hunter Education instructors Edward Vien
and Larry Williams, along
with their longtime hare-hunting companion Roger Eastman, will introduce participants to one of New Hampshire's finest small-game hunting experiences -- hare hunting with beagles.
The workshop will cover topics such as snowshoe hares and where to find them, equipment needs, dogs and their needs and training, safety considerations, where to find information on hare and rabbit hunting and clubs in New Hampshire that focus on dogs and hare hunting. The instructors have years of experience and a true love and passion for their sport, so bring all your questions.
Participants should bring warm outdoor clothing and be prepared to go outside. The first portion of the workshop will be conducted in the classroom of the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center, and then the class moves outside to the forest, where the dogs will show their stuff!
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats.
