Snowshoe Hare Hunting Workshop – January 23 in Holderness
HOLDERNESS, N.H. -- Learn about the excitement of snowshoe hare hunting at a free workshop being offered at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness, N.H. The workshop will take place from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 23, 2010. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, call the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center at (603) 536-3954.
At the workshop, Edward Vien and Larry Williams, President and Treasurer of the NH Beagle Club and Volunteer Hunter Education instructors; along with Bob Drozdowski, past president of the NH Beagle Club, and Larry’s son Thomas Williams 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 many years of experience and a true 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 takes place in the classroom, and then the class moves outside, where the dogs will show their stuff! For the outdoor portion of the class, you’ll need to dress warmly and wear proper footgear for snow (bring snowshoes if you have them). Please note that this workshop does not include lunch.
Activities at Owl Brook Hunter Education Center are made possible in part by federal funds provided through the Wildlife Restoration Program.
