"Intro to deer hunting is for anyone who wants to learn about deer hunting but doesn't know where to start. We've had an elderly dad come with his adult children. We've had parents come with their 10- or 11-year-old children. We've had new immigrants – for example, the Russian community has found us. They came here, they found jobs, and now they're becoming part of Minnesota's outdoor heritage. We've had young urban couples come and say they wanted to source their food locally. It's open to anyone ages 10 and older who wants to learn about deer hunting in a hands-on setting. We'll have more than 20 volunteers working with people one on one."
