IDNR Youth Wingshooting Clinic

June 10 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


ATTENTION YOUTH HUNTERS: This upcoming winter our young hunters will have the opportunity to register for Mentored Youth Dove and Upland Game hunting here at Gardner Camp. Our wingshooting clinic, hosted by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, teaches young shooters the fundamentals of hitting a moving target with a shotgun with reasonable reliability. Target presentations resemble actual field hunting situations. Participants will encounter presentations that mimic the flight characteristics of pheasants, quail, doves, ducks, and other game species. Our Youth Wingshooting Clinic is especially important for our young shooters to attend to be eligible for either type of these hunts. Completing this clinic will allow your young hunter to be prepared for their hunt and increase their success rate of harvesting birds.

Join us on Saturday, June 10th for our annual Youth Wingshooting Clinic and take advantage of the opportunity to spend a day with your son/daughter as he/she learns the basics of shotgun shooting. Taught by IDNR/NSCA Certified Wingshooting Instructors from throughout the State, this clinic takes place both in the classroom and the shooting field and includes everything needed to learn: shotguns, shotshells, clay targets, trap machines, eye and ear protection. Lunch is provided. Limited to 20 youth- Ages 12+. No cost. Sponsored by IDNR and Gardner Camp. Registration will close when our limit is reached.
