Introduction to Hunting

The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Sandusky County Sportsmen’s Club located at 3950 State Route 600, Gibsonburg 43431. The program is free of charge and will cover hunting the most popular game species in northwest Ohio such as squirrel, waterfowl and white-tail deer. Experienced Division of Wildlife staff will share information on how to get started hunting, where to hunt in northwest Ohio and how to apply for controlled hunt opportunities.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a notepad and pencil to take notes. The program will be held indoors in the clubhouse. Please be aware that the 4H Shooting Sports program will be using the ranges on the club grounds. If you have a child interested in joining this program, shooting sports advisor, MaryAnn Miller will be available to answer questions.
