See the Woods Through the Eyes of a Hunter

October 19, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free
Foggy woodlands.

See the Woods Through the Eyes of a Hunter

Spend time with veteran hunters and see the land in a new way. Hear about the history of wildlife conservation in the US and the critical role hunters play in that conservation. A hunter’s success is defined by the journey, not the harvest. We’ll walk the woods and learn about habitat, the animals that use it, how to read wildlife signs, and the concept of fair chase.

We’ll meet in the morning in the Community Room at the Richmond Free Library (201 Bridge St., Richmond, VT). The field portion of the day will be at the Andrews Community Forest. We will carpool to that site, which is about one mile down the road from the library.

We will have coffee and light refreshments in the morning, as well as a light, wild game lunch back at the Community Room after our time in the woods.

Please be ready for a moderately strenuous two-hour walk in the woods with proper footwear, snacks, and water.

This event is co-sponsored by Backcountry Hunters and Anglers.

Land Restoration Event Series

This event is part of our Land Restoration Event Series. We hope you will join us on the land to discuss how to help native plants thrive, learn how hunters help our woods stay healthy, and join efforts that just might help ash trees stay in our woods. All events are free and open to the public. Registration is required.

For more information, contact Dan Kilborn by email or at (802) 745-6303.
