MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) invites adults interested in giving turkey hunting a try to sign up for our next Hunt for Food course starting on March 22.

Led by volunteer instructors with help from DNR staff, the multi-session program includes a virtual introductory classroom session followed by in-person, hands-on instructive field days in preparation for a weekend of mentored turkey hunting.

The course gives adults an opportunity to get a jump-start on learning to hunt, a life skill that provides a unique and meaningful connection to Wisconsin’s wildlife and the outdoors.

The in-person Hunt For Food turkey hunting course will take place in south central Wisconsin at various locations in Dane, Iowa, Columbia and Sauk Counties. Additional Hunt for Food courses will be added at a later date. Check Go Wild regularly for future course options. 

Space is extremely limited due to available hunting locations and volunteer capacity. With only 10 open seats, don’t wait to sign up. Please be sure that you can attend all sessions of the program.

Registration closes March 18 or when all seats are filled.
