Learn the basics of hunting upland birds at DNR clinic

Anyone who wants to learn the basics of hunting birds like pheasants or grouse is invited to attend a program for those who have limited or no experience hunting upland birds, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Upland Bird Day is 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 13, at the Dakota County Gun Club, 17501 Station Trail near Rosemount, and is hosted by the DNR, Dakota County Gun Club and Pheasants Forever.

Upland bird hunting typically involves walking through prairie grasses, young aspen forests, marsh edges and other habitat, often using a dog to point or flush the birds.

Following a large group presentation on upland birds and their habitat, participants will spend the afternoon in a series of hands-on upland bird hunting stations.

To register, contact Bylander at 218-833-8628 or linda.bylander@state.mn.us. Registration is limited and costs $10 per family or $5 per person.
