BABCOCK, Wis. (AP) -- State wildlife officials are planning a series of clinics for beginning deer hunters late this summer.
The Department of Natural Resources will hold the one-day workshops at the Sandhill Wildlife Area near Babcock.
The classes will include information on deer biology and management, scouting and firearm safety as well as hunting rules and ethics.
The agency will offer a youth workshop for children ages 12 to 15 on Aug. 4, 6 and 8. A clinic for first-time hunters over age 16 will take place on Sept. 24. Graduates will be invited to take part in a special hunt in the wildlife area on Nov. 5-6.
Applications are available on the DNR's website and at DNR service centers.
