NY Virtual Learn to Hunt Series #1: Getting into the Woods - How to Find Spots to Hunt

More and more people are turning to hunting as a means to provide food and connection with the outdoors in the wake of recent events. Maybe you’re one of them and you just took your online hunter safety course. Now what? You know you need some mentorship in the field to help guide you or at least to get some of your questions answered, but current guidelines for social distancing are making that more of a challenge than usual.

The New York Chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is here to help! We’re hosting a free Virtual Learn to Hunt Series to help you into the field. Throughout the series we’ll cover:

  • How to find spots to hunt on our public lands
  • What to do when you get there and tips for being in the field
  • What to consider when that first shot opportunity presents itself
  • What to do once you take your first shot.

We might not be able to gather together right now, but we can build a community. Join us on Zoom or Facebook Live September 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th at 8 p.m. EST. You’ll get a chance to ask questions and interact with the panelists - your local BHA members who want to help you get into the field and find success, whether your plan is to hunt deer, small game or birds.

Participants will learn how to find legal hunting access, where to park, finding game once in the woods (sign, food, water, bedding) and getting out of the woods safely.

The event is hosted by Matt Corcoran and featuring panelists Tony Cortese, Gary Maerz and Zack Stines.

To attend: please register below for week one, Getting into the Woods - How to Find Spots to Hunt. Once you RSVP, you will automatically be sent an email with the Zoom login information. If you have any technical issues, please contact Matthew Corcoran at [email protected]
