Hunter Skills Weekend Features Variety of Courses at Holiday Lake May 19-21
Want to learn new hunting skills? Or hone the ones you have? If so, this workshop is for you! On May 19-21, Holiday Lake 4-H Educational Center in Appomattox, VA will host the Virginia Hunter Skills Weekend in partnership with the Virginia Hunter Education Association [VHEA] and DGIF. The group of dedicated instructors will present 19 classes during the 1½ days that include archery, pistol, shotgun, bow hunting, bow fishing, predator hunting, skeet, survival, and upland bird shooting techniques. Optional evening events include demonstrations and discussions on deer skinning skills and tree stand use and safety. Participants in the waterfowl workshop can paint a duck decoy to take home. Organizers see this as a step in the right direction toward preserving Virginia’s rich hunting heritage.
